Can you drink alcohol while taking Eliquis?

Answers (1)

31 Jul 2013

Since I just started Eliquis myself I talked to 2 different pharmacies and asked the same question. I have a glass of wine nightly prior to dinner. I was told it was not wise to drink daily as it may increase side effects. However, drinking on occasion should be fine. I still enjoy my glass of wine but limit how often. I have found taking Eliquis with a large glass of water or taking with food helps to minimize stomach upsets. Take care.
