Eliquis, also known as apixaban, is a medication primarily used to prevent the formation of blood clots and lower the risk of stroke. It is mainly prescribed for people who suffer from an irregular heartbeat (atrial fibrillation) or for people after knee or hip surgery when their movement may be limited.
There are a number of other reasons to take Eliquis. Apixaban is also used to treat blood clot formation in the lungs, known as pulmonary embolism (PE), or blood clot formation in the deep veins of your legs, known as DVT (Deep vein thrombosis). Eliquis may also be used to lower the risk of the recurrence of blood clot development.
Eliquis (apixaban) is an important blood clot prevention medication. However, Eliquis can be expensive because no generic version (known as apixaban) has been made available in the United States yet. It’s no surprise that high drug prices lead to many wondering if a cheaper generic is available. The short answer is yes, but, currently, you can only purchase generic Eliquis from an international option like our Canadian online pharmacy.
In a press release from 2019, the FDA approved generic versions of Eliquis, but they are not available in the U.S. This is because Bristol-Meyers Squibb and Pfizer argue that their patent gives them the right to sell Eliquis exclusively until November 2026.
You don't have to wait until 2026 to get access to generic Eliquis. Generic Eliquis is available through other avenues because U.S. drug patents may not apply with the same rules as other manufacturing markets around the world. Since apixaban is not yet available for sale in the United States, you can start saving now by purchasing it from a Canadian pharmacy like Canadian Pharmacy Service.
Currently, the price of generic Eliquis from Canada is actually close to the price of the brand name. This is typically not the case as generics are often far cheaper. Nonetheless, whether you purchase brand or generic Eliquis, significant savings are available compared to the average American pharmacy. Read on to learn about Eliquis costs.
Access to generic Eliquis through an online Canadian pharmacy is a big deal. Generic apixaban allows at-risk patients to save on one of the most popular and effective anticoagulants on the market. Several factors, such as the drug’s effectiveness, demand, and regulations, keep the price of brand-name Eliquis quite high. The availability of this generic version bridges the gap between patients with financial concerns and the forefront of blood-thinning medication. Generic apixaban lets you benefit from the heavy research and development invested into Eliquis at a fraction of the cost.
Beyond substantial savings, the availability of generic apixaban from Canada is highly valuable because it gets you affordable apixaban much sooner. As mentioned, generic versions of Eliquis are not available in the U.S. until 2026 at the earliest. Getting easy access to this normally expensive medication can make a life-saving difference. Clinical studies have shown that apixaban is more effective at preventing blood clots and stroke than warfarin. Plus, apixaban accomplishes this without increasing your bleeding risk. Combined with its quick onset time, generic apixaban is a cost-effective way of getting the benefits of Eliquis without breaking the bank.
Eliquis can average $450 to $500 per prescription filled in the U.S. With such a high price, you may be wondering if a cheaper generic is available. The short answer is yes, but currently only from an international option like our Canadian online pharmacy.
If you’re looking to save on the cost of Eliquis, then Canadian pharmacies are a great option. Our current prices offer substantial savings compared to U.S. prices.

Common Eliquis side effects may include but are not limited to:
Contact your doctor if you experience any of the following side effects of Eliquis:
Many patients prefer Eliquis because it has fewer interactions than older anticoagulants. If you start taking Eliquis, it is important to let your doctor know if you are taking another anticoagulant drug. Having a high concentration of blood thinner in the blood increases your risk of serious complications or a major bleeding event.
You should also tell your doctor if you are taking antidepressants, including SSRIs like fluoxetine and SNRIs like desvenlafaxine/venlafaxine. HIV drugs can also affect how apixaban works in the body. Seizure medications and supplements like St. John’s wort may also alter the efficacy of your blood thinner. Your doctor may advise you against taking over-the-counter blood thinners like aspirin or NSAIDs.
If you are at risk for a heart attack or stroke, your doctor may advise you to take low-dose aspirin to improve your cardiovascular condition. Always talk to your doctor before starting a new medication or supplement.
Eliquis 5mg and 2.5mg are both available.
