Coumadin Tablets are used to actively treat and prevent blood clots (thrombosis). Being an anticoagulant (also known as a äóÖblood thinneräó»), Coumadin can help stop blood clots before they lead to serious health problems such as strokes or heart attacks.
Blood clots occur as the bodyäó»s natural response to damaged blood vessels to prevent excessive bleeding. Other causes of blood clots include when the blood flow is disturbed (if a blood vessel is blocked due to fatty deposits), if blood flow slows down due to reduced mobility, or in the event of heart failure or an irregular heartbeat.
Coumadin is specifically designed to treat people at risk of a blood clot, like after a mini stroke or those who experience an irregular heartbeat. Coumadin can be used alone or in combination with other medication äóñ consult doctoräó»s recommendation before use.
Our available doses include:

Your dose depends on your response to warfarin, determined by a blood test called the prothrombin time test (PT), which measures how long your blood takes to clot.
