Anticoagulant Drugs: Taking Anticoagulants Safely

As part of your treatment, you may be prescribed an anticoagulant. This is a type of drug that affects your blood. It prevents blood clots from forming. If you have a blood clot, an anticoagulant can keep it from growing larger. But because anticoagulants interfere with clotting, they can lead to uncontrollable bleeding. This can be especially dangerous if you are cut or injured. It's important to be aware of the dangers associated with anticoagulants so you can use them safely.
