Overview Information on Coumadin
Pharmacist Tip
Never adjust your dose of Coumadin unless the doctor has told you to do so.     
Coumadin® is an anticoagulant medicine, which is also called a blood thinner. Coumadin is the brand name for warfarin sodium. Coumadin comes in tablets.

Your doctor may give you Coumadin to treat a blood clot or prevent one from happening. Coumadin helps reduce the risk of dying from a blood clot or stroke if you have a heart attack. Coumadin helps to prevent other serious conditions if blood clots form in your legs or lungs. If you had a valve replaced in your heart and have an irregular, rapid heartbeat, your doctor may give you Coumadin to lower the risk of a blood clot happening.

Before taking Coumadin, tell your doctor about any medicines you take, including over-the-counter and herbal medicines. Tell your doctor about all your medical conditions, including if you are or plan to become pregnant or are breast-feeding.
