Not all patients who start on ELIQUIS for acute DVT / PE will stay on ELIQUIS; some acute DVT / PE patients who receive treatment do not require treatment for the prevention of recurrent DVT / PE. Other patients may be prescribed ELIQUIS for the prevention of recurrent VTE after initial treatment for acute DVT / PE with another anticoagulant.3 This is a decision for the prescribing clinician together with patient involvement in the decision-making.
