Does anyone have a problem with the drug Eliquis? My doctors want me to keep taking it even though my afib is now controlled with an anti-afib drug. I have been on Eliquis for about a year and am suddenly getting bruises all over my body. It started on my calves and now is inching up toward my thighs, hips, back,etc. Blood tests show everything normal. Seeing doctor tomorrow. I would like to get off the blood thinners and don't know why I need them if I'm not in afib (I had permanent afib for about 6 years - and 2 failed ablations). Should I go back to warfarin since I used that for 4 years with no problem?
