Warfarin belongs to a group of medications known as anticoagulants, designed to prevent the extension of existing blood clots and/or formation of new blood clots. Conditions like Atrial Fibrillation, Deep Vein Thrombosis, Pulmonary Embolism and Cardiac Thrombus will require the use of warfarin.
There are other brands of warfarin tablets available that are non-interchangeable. Thus it is important to recognize and know the strength of the warfarin that is prescribed.
