I am experiencing headaches and fatigue, since starting eliquis. I have only been on it a couple of weeks... will side effects eventually go away?
I have been on Eliquis for over a year. I did get minor headaches, muscle aches and joint pain. Those side effects have lessened considerable, but I do have fatigue. However I also take other medication that causes fatigue, so not sure which med to blame it on. A couple of weeks is not long enough for your body to adjust. If this headache is stopping you from everyday activities, you need to consult your physician.
LJM04; ON ELIQUIS IT SAYS TO CONTACT YOUR DOCTOR (a headache, dizziness, weakness, feeling like you might pass out;) iF YOU GET ANY OF THESE. So at the first chance give your doctor a call
never stop taking your medication without the doctor telling you so. And also for a headache do not use any NSAIDS. this is any of the anti-inflammatories like Ibuprofen, Naprosyn, Motrin, etc good luck for now call the doctor Monday. chuck1957
