I had robotic mitral valve repair surgery 7 weeks ago. I was initially told I would need Eliquis for 6 weeks. I am currently having PVC’s. My Cardiologist is keeping me on the Eliquis (5 mg. 2 times a day) while I do a 2 week Zio patch to monitor my heart rate. I have had a headache for the past 7 weeks. He does not think it is related to to the medication but I disagree. I have a brief period of relief towards the end of the day ( about 8 hours after my morning dose and before I take the bedtime dose). Has anyone else had a similar experience? Is it possible to reduce the dose?
