To stay on Eliquis or not

@spudmato. After my TIA last January, my cardiologist and my children convinced me to have a loop recorder implant to make sure I don't have afib, as many people have afib and not really feel it. So far so good. No afib noted. I was also put on Xeralto. Apart from some bleeding from my gum, which I have problem with before the Xeralto, I have not noticed any serious bruising. I've read that blood clotting is found in many covid patients so that's another reason I'm still on it.
I don't like taking meds, but don't want another TIA either. The next time I may not be so lucky as I did not suffer any damage from the last one. I just wish there's a generic soon. I can hardly afford it, yet I don't qualify for any kind of assistance either from xeralto or Medicare.

Congratulations on your outcome so far. Some what good news as far as a generic for Eliquis as the FDA has announced the approval of one but it doesn't mean that it will become available commercially anytime soon. Yep in the same boat as you with the cost. Hate it when watching commercials for it and they say "May cost you only $5.00 per prescription".
