What is warfarin (warfin)?

Warfarin (warfin) is an anticoagulant. It works by blocking the synthesis of certain clotting factors. Without these clotting factors, blood clots are unable to form.

Warfarin (warfin) is used to treat and prevent harmful clots that may occur in the veins (venous thrombosis), in the lungs (pulmonary embolism), with a type of abnormal heartbeat (atrial fibrillation), or following a heart valve replacement. Warfarin (warfin) is also used to reduce the risk of death, recurring heart attack, or blood clotting events (eg, stroke) after a heart attack. Warfarin (warfin) may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.

Warfarin (warfin) side effects include nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, stomach/abdominal bloating or cramps. Tell you doctor if you suffer from unusual pain/swelling/discomfort, prolonged bleeding from cuts or gums, persistent nosebleeds, unusually heavy or prolonged menstrual flow, unusual or easy bruising, dark urine, black stools, severe headache, unusual dizziness, nausea or vomiting, stomach/abdominal pain or yellowing of eyes/skin.
