What is Warfarin?
Warfarin is a common anticoagulant drug prescribed to prevent the formation of blood clots (thrombosis) and their migration elsewhere in the body (thromboembolism). Warfarin can be prescribed to individuals who are currently suffering from a thrombus (blood clot) to prevent it travelling elsewhere in the body. Warfarin is an oral medication and useful for longer-term anticoagulant treatment and is often used to treat people at a high risk of thrombosis, due to genetics, artificial heart valves, an abnormal heart rhythm, surgery or have previously suffered from a blood clot.
