Coumadin (Warfarin) belongs to the class of medications called anticoagulants. It is sometimes referred to as a "blood thinner," although it does not actually thin the blood.

Coumadin (Warfarin) helps to prevent Blood Clots from forming or from getting bigger, but it does not dissolve blood clots. Coumadin (Warfarin) is used for the treatment of blood clots in the veins, arteries, lungs, and heart. It is also used to prevent clots for people with conditions that put them at an increased risk of developing blood clots (e.g., some abnormal heart rhythms [atrial fibrillation], leg circulation problems, Heart Attack or Congestive Heart Failure). It is also used to reduce the risk of blood clots due to surgical procedures or trauma.

Blood clots in the circulation are dangerous because they can cause medical problems such as heart attacks, Stroke, and pulmonary Embolism. Coumadin (Warfarin) helps to reduce blood clotting within 24 hours of taking the medication. The full effect may take 72 to 96 hours to occur.

Coumadin (Warfarin) works by partially blocking the reuse of vitamin K in your liver. Vitamin K is needed to make clotting factors that help the blood to clot and prevent bleeding. Vitamin K is found naturally in foods such as leafy, green vegetables, and certain vegetable oils. If you are taking Coumadin (Warfarin), you may continue to eat these foods, but do not make any drastic changes to your diet.

Coumadin (Warfarin) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Coumadin (Warfarin) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Coumadin (Warfarin) may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Coumadin (Warfarin) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Coumadin (Warfarin), speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Coumadin (Warfarin) without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Coumadin (Warfarin) to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Coumadin (Warfarin) if their doctor has not prescribed it.
