Patients prescribed Eliquis (apixaban) will receive a Patient Alert Card in the medication pack with the package leaflet. Please ensure you have read and understood the information in the card because it contains important safety information including the importance of taking apixaban regularly as instructed by the doctor, the main signs and symptoms of bleeding, and when to seek medical attention. Please carry the Patient Alert Card with you at all times and show it to every healthcare professional including pharmacists. Editorial updates were recently made to the card and the latest version of the card is dated January 2021. If you have lost the copy of the Patient Alert Card that is included in the medication pack, or it is damaged, please contact BMS Medical Information for a replacement copy (telephone: 0800 731 1736; e-mail: [email protected]).
