ELIQUIS (apixaban) has demonstrated superior efficacy with a comparable major bleeding rate vs. placebo in patients receiving treatment for prevention of DVT / PE recurrence1

ELIQUIS is only licensed for prevention of recurrent DVT / PE at a dose of 2.5 mg BD.2

* In patients for whom there was clinical uncertainty about the benefit of continuing treatment. Prior to the study, all patients had been treated for 6–12 months with standard anticoagulant therapy or had completed treatment with ELIQUIS or enoxaparin / warfarin as participants in the AMPLIFY trial.1


ELIQUIS dosing for your patients with DVT / PE is simple: START twice daily, STAY twice daily2

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.2 This is a decision for the prescribing clinician together with patient involvement in the decision-making.
