Its not in the list of side effects.
I started eliquis 2 weeks ago and have noticed my blood sugars, fasting and otherwise, have been much higher. This is not a listed side effect but I did come across an article that said this was common in people over 60.
Yes. I just started due to my first AFib attack. My Blood Sugar spiked significantly within and hour of taking a 5 mg pill. My pharmacist says it does happen but should only be a temporary spike and once my body gets used to it the blood sugar will level out. I see my cardiologist tomorrow. Here’s hoping my pharmacist is right. Far better than a clot letting loose
Has anyone got a answer to their question about Eliquis and good sugar skyrocketing? I started on Eliquis and Cardizem about a month ago and my blood sugar reading are off the charts.
Yes. I have type 2. Before Eliquis my fasting and overall glucose numbers were doing very well. Now my fasting numbers are 25-40 points higher.
The irony is that I was put on Eliquis specifically because I have diabetes.
My mother has been on Eliquis for 2 days and already her blood sugar is higher than it ever has been. It's not dangerously high, but it is higher than ever.
