I've gone to several doctors for follow-up visits after getting home. One of them asked me what medications was I now on so I gave him the list. One of them is called "Eliquis". He asked me if I knew what it was for and being unsure, I said no. He told me it's an anti-coagulant and a very powerful one at that with effects very much like that of coumadin. With a bit of hyperbole, he told me it turns people into hemophiliacs.

It doesn't really do that of course but bleeding can become a very serious issue and I was very clearly told that I need to be extremely careful about that. Since I was receiving Eliquis in the hospital, the above incident was even more dangerous than I realized.

I had been in very significant jeopardy.
