Eliquis® (apixaban)

Risk Minimisation Information for Healthcare Professionals

Temporary discontinuation of apixaban1,2

Discontinuing anticoagulants, including apixaban, for active bleeding, elective surgery, or invasive procedures places patients at an increased risk of thrombosis. Lapses in therapy should be avoided and if anticoagulation with apixaban must be temporarily discontinued for any reason, therapy should be restarted as soon as possible provided the clinical situation allows and adequate haemostasis has been established.
