Brief Answer:

No known interactions

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

There are no known interactions between Eliquis and DMSO (dimethyl sulfoxide).

There are other medications that interact with DMSO, so if you are using other medications then these should also be checked.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
