Hi all, a bit scared about being given apixoban, found a DVT behind knee and upper thigh. Concerns are that after taking, now on day 2 have a headache and feel like I am getting the flu, a bit dizzy and achy, was on heparin injections for 2 days so blood thinners in one form or another now for 4 days. Feel a bit unwell and wondered whether this was a side effect, and if so, how long will it take before it goes. I have to be on them for 3 months and have to come off HRT which they think was the cause. Also noticed gums a bit pale, athough have high iron, may not even be linked. One other question please is anyone taking this with esomeprazole and if so have you upped your dose to cover yourself in case of stomach bleeding. Did ask GP all these things but they just say do not worry bleeding is very rare.
