Warfarin is a widely-prescribed blood thinner used for a variety of cardiac conditions. It was approved for medical use in the early 1950s. Decades of research have helped health-care practitioners learn how to effectively and safely use warfarin. Although still considered a "high alert" medication, patients who adhere to therapy guidelines and remain under the care of a physician typically do well and experience few causes for concern.
