Eliquis® may increase the risk for life-threatening side effects, including uncontrollable bleeding events and blood clots.
Eliquis (apixaban) is an oral blood thinning medication and the third warfarin alternative that has be introduced to consumers in the United States. The pharmaceutical companies Pfizer and Bristol-Meyer are responsible for manufacturing Eliquis. The drug is designed to prevent blood clots from forming and strokes from occurring in individuals with nonvascular atrial fibrillations, deep vein thrombosis and patients who have undergone hip or knee replacement surgery.
Similar to the blood thinner Xarelto, Eliquis failed to provide doctors with an antidote to stop uncontrolled/internal bleeding that may be cause by the medication. The manufacturer Pfizer and Bristol-Meyer failed to properly warn consumers of the potential risk the drug may cause. Some of these life-threatening risks include: internal bleeding, uncontrolled bleeding, deep vein thrombosis or death.
Eliquis lawsuits are still relatively new, many predict that the litigation pattern for the blood-thinner Eliquis will be parallel to other anticoagulant lawsuits.
If you or a loved one has experienced an adverse side effect such as uncontrolled bleeding after taking the blood thinning medication Eliquis you may be entitled to financial compensation. Due to Pfizer and Bristol-Meyer’s lack of warning to patients and doctors about the risks of uncontrolled and internal bleeding that may be associated with Eliquis and not adequately informing of the correct procedure to stop the bleeding, you could suffer from lifelong problems and in some cases death.
