I have not started taking Elyquis yet but am glad to know that leafy greens will not inhibit anything .
I am vegetarian and juice daily which means I eat a lot of Raw fruits/veggies including lettuce, spinach, kale and parsley.
Another factor to being vegetarian is that I currently have gout which discourages you from eating any and all meat, shellfish and a limits your intake of beans .
In Initial research, I thought I had read that leafy greens can reduce the effectiveness of Elyquis. Thank you for clearing this up .
Sally, you do not need to avoid salads or dark green leafy vegetables on Eliquis. In contrast to warfarin (which I assume you've taken before because of the inquiry), Eliquis is not affected by the Vitamin K levels (which are found in dark green leafy vegetables)
I take Eliquis and there is no need to avoid salads, There is no interaction. I eat a salad every day.
