After 6-week therapy after hip replacement surgery, told to stop taking Eliquis and have had two nights of nerve problems, agitation, restless legs and hands, unable to sleep or stay asleep, total exhaustion. Never experienced anything like it. Now, after three nights of this, it is finally starting to recede.
This is pretty normal and you should continue to get better this was because of the build up in your blood it takes a while to leave your system. If you continue to have problems longer than another week try and reach your doctor to get some help.
I took painkillers for 12 months after mine (hip) and then was gently detoxed over 6 weeks. A proper supervised and medicated withdrawal is virtually painless.
