Anticoagulants are medications that control the blood's ability to clot and are prescribed to prevent or treat a harmful blood clot. Careful monitoring is needed to prevent bleeding or clotting complications.
Warfarin is used to prevent blood clots from forming or growing larger in your blood and blood vessels. It is prescribed for people with certain types of irregular heartbeat, people with prosthetic (replacement or mechanical) heart valves, and people who have suffered a heart attack.
