Eliquis (generic: apixaban) is a blood-thinning drug that has been linked to uncontrollable bleeding events, cerebral hemorrhage, stroke, blood clots and death. Eliquis is used to prevent blood clots in the veins after a hip or knee replacement surgery. People who have these surgeries are less active for weeks or months while they recover. This can cause blood flow to slow down and increase the risk of a blood clot.
Eliquis may also be prescribed to prevent stroke and blood clots in patients with atrial fibrillation (a-fib) which is a type of abnormal heart rhythm. With atrial fibrillation, part of the heart beats irregularly, which increases the risk of blood clots forming, leading to a stroke.
Eliquis was developed by Bristol-Meyers Squibb and Pfizer Inc., and was first approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in December 2012.

Know Your Rights
Lawsuits are being filed alleging that Eliquis causes significant bleeding, deep vein thrombosis (DVT), and other serious side effects. Plaintiffs in these cases contend that Pfizer and Bristol-Meyers Squibb failed to adequately warn doctors and patients that there is no antidote to reverse the blood-thinning effects of Eliquis once bleeding begins. Complaints have also been filed on behalf of individuals who died due to complications from uncontrollable bleeding events, allegedly as a result of using Eliquis.
