Can changing dosage timing of Eliquis have adverse effects?
I would explain as follows:
Welcome and thank you for asking on HCM!
Regarding your concern, I agree with you on the decision on waiting for the next dose.
But, the overdose would impose you to higher risk of bleeding, compared to the risk of waiting for the next dose.
The half-time of Eliquis is 6 hours, which means that it stays in your blood up to 30 hours in progressively lowering concentrations.
Hope to have been helpful!
