Hello, Denis! How are you?

Yes, those have all been reported side effects of this medication, by users and the FDA. You may also experience nausea, headache and easy bruising.

If the issues are severe, you may want to speak to your doctor as it may not be the right medication for you to take.

Is there anything else I can help with?

I have really healthy eyes and never had blurry vision at all. I was recently diagnosed with a DVT and was placed on Eliquis. I started noticing my vision changing soon after a couple of weeks! My eyes have been severely dry also. Has anyone had this similar side effect before? Will my vision improve or go back to normal when my doctor takes me off of it? Are there any other blood thinners that I can try that don't affect the eyes? This is so weird and scary...
