MyIdentityDoctor.com offers a patient guide to those taking Warfarin and other anticoagulant medications.
Lakewood, CO -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/19/2015 -- Individuals with blood clotting issues take prescription medication like Warfarin/Coumadin to help stop the formation of dangerous blood clots that can lead to a heart attack, stroke, pulmonary embolism, deep vein thrombosis, even death. Warfarin is an anticoagulant that helps stop the blood from forming clots and in effect, thins the blood (though it is not considered a blood thinner).
My Identity Doctor advises patients taking Warfarin to follow these steps:
1)Carefully monitor each dose taken to achieve an ideal level of blood clotting. An overdose can lead to excessive bleeding, while not taking enough can lead to blood clots.
2)Get frequent Prothrombin Time Tests initially upon starting the medication so your doctor can determine the exact right dosage.
3)Always inform your medical providers that you are taking Warfarin along with any other medications. Ask your doctor before taking any over the counter pain relief or other medication. Ibuprofin increases the anticoagulant properties of Warfarin and should only be taken with a doctor's approval.
4)Always wear a Warfarin bracelet or Coumadin bracelet to alert medical personnel of your situation in case you are not able to. Coumadin medical alert bracelets can save your life.
