Primary Aim: To determine if apixaban is superior to aspirin for prevention of the composite outcome of any stroke (hemorrhagic or ischemic) or death from any cause in patients with recent ICH and atrial fibrillation (AF).
Secondary Aim: To determine if apixaban, compared with aspirin, results in better functional outcomes as measured by the modified Rankin Scale.

Active Comparator: Apixaban
Apixaban dosing will be 5 mg tablet in morning and 5 mg tablet in evening. A reduced dose of 2.5 mg tablet in morning and 2.5 mg tablet in evening will be used if: (1) ≥2 of the following are present: age ≥80 years, body weight ≤60 kg, or serum creatinine 1.5-2.4 mg/dL, or (2) Patient is taking a strong CYP3A4/pGP inhibitor (e.g., ketoconazole, itraconazole, ritonavir, or clarithromycin).
Apixaban is an oral anticoagulant of the Factor Xa inhibitor class.
Other Name: Eliquis
Placebo Comparator: Aspirin
Aspirin dose will be 81 mg tablet once daily.
Aspirin is an oral antiplatelet drug.
