It is listed as a moderate level potential for interaction...(Eliquis and Fish oil )

You may discuss with your doctor ..

Other meds and your specific history may influence this decision..

There is some potential for increased risk of bleeding..

I would not take both without specific OK from your doctor..,1749-3
