I met briefly with Dr. B to discuss a possible catheter ablation. He wanted me to take Eliquis before and after the procedure. I asked about side effects and Dr. Bahnson said I should not go bungee jumping and should not notice any side effects. I did my own research and learned that when you stop taking Eliquis, you have a much higher than normal chance of having a clot or stroke during the 30 days after you stop taking it. The "rebound effect" that occurs with most drugs. Too dangerous.
