What Does A “ Watchman “ Do In Afib?

What Does A “ Watchman “ Do In Afib?

I’m on Eliquis & have had several issues with bleeding during the night.
I did some research & have found that certain anti depressants can interact with the Eliquis & cause more than normal bleeding. We cut my dose in half & have not had any episodes since then.

I take Eliquis too and baby aspirin. What kind of bleeding were you doing during the night? I have bad bruising and bleed a bunch if I get poked somehow but otherwise I think I'm okay. I got a pacemaker last year and that solved the problem on the low end but I can still get high HR sometimes.
