... increased anxiety and depression. Is this a side effect of Eliquis and does it go away after being on it for a while? Digestive problems include feelings of bloating and fullness in abdomen and slight nausea from time to time. Feel very anxious which leads to my increased depression. I am 75 yrs.old and was just diagnosed with afib.
I have been on Eliquis for 1 year now. I had a stroke, and was in the hospital when Eliquis was first given. I was given at least 3 injections a day for nausea. When I came home, the only thing that helped me was Vernor's ginger ale. I sat with that for about 2 hours, before I could navigate. I am not sure when, perhaps 6 months, the nausea disappeared. I am fine now but Eliquis does have a depressive side at first. At least for me. That is better also. I am not totally happy with this medication, but believe it is better than another stroke or Afib attack.
Milo75; Just as the other post has said some are lucky and all of these side effects after a while can go away. Depending on how long you have had it. But with a number of side effects, your having you really should let the doctor know and see what else is close to this medication. I am sure ongoing Nausea and Depression is not good so if it were me I would check with the doctor being almost everything you have asked about is listed as a side effect. So please call the nurse or the doctor and let them know what you are dealing with. good luck and hope you get to feeling better very soon. Chuck1957
