Eliquis (Apixaban) is also used to treat and prevent clots from forming in the legs (deep vein thrombosis [DVT]) or in the lungs (pulmonary Embolism).

Eliquis (Apixaban) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Eliquis (Apixaban) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here.
