Eliquis (apixaban) Patient Alert Card

Patients prescribed Eliquis (apixaban) will receive a Patient Alert Card in the medication pack with the package leaflet. The card 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. As the card contains important information, the patient should be instructed to carry the Patient Alert Card at all times and show it to every healthcare professional including pharmacists. The card was last updated in April 2020 to include the instruction that patients should also inform their doctor if they are having an invasive procedure. If you would like a hard copy of the Patient Alert Card posted out to you, please contact BMS Medical Information (telephone: 0800 731 1736; e-mail: [email protected]).
