Blood clotting is a serious medical problem that can be fatal. You may need to take medications to avoid blood clotting (called “anticoagulants”) if you have been diagnosed or treated for one or more of the following:
Sometimes it is only necessary to take anticoagulants for a few months, but in many other circumstances you will take them for life. Anticoagulant drugs affect the blood's ability to clot and therefore patients may be at an increased risk of bleeding when using them. Because of this risk, it is vitally important that patients be monitored regularly and only use the medications as directed.
