    hi Samantha . I am taking Apixaban 2 a day. I had a PE. last August. I had been improving steadily. But the last week I feel really out of breath and tired. Have you been told to stop taking it. How long have you been on it. ?

      Hi I have clots in both lungs. Just been left to cope. I presumed I had to take Apixaban for ever.

      Hi Samantha. How long did you wait before you had bloods checked. Difficult to tell what is a side affect of Apixaban or if it is from the clots. ?

      I have been on it since november and ive never got my blood check. I think my achs and muscle pain is from it but i dont know about my chest. My hear is fine my cardiologist said it could be my back but dont know for sure.

      Thanks Samantha. I have bad back pain and aches around my kidneys and chest. I put it down to the clots. My heart is ok too. It still takes me ages to hoover as I have to keep stopping. I still can't walk more than 1/2 mile before I struggle. Two flight of Stairs are out of the question. Just have to keep positive. better than I was before Christmas. x

      I have been on it since December.  I have neck stiffness that will not subside.  I also have had bouts of confusion and dizzyness (could be oxygen level) I just don't feel "right" on it.  I am hoping to come off of it in June so I am just toughing it out.
