Anticoagulant medicines are a group of medicines that inhibit blood
clotting, helping to prevent blood clots. Blood clots can cause
heart attacks and strokes. Common anticoagulant medicines
Coumadin®, Jantoven® (warfarin)
Hep-Lock U/P®, Hep-Lock®, HepFlush-10® (heparin)
Are you on this medication for the rest of your life, next year, or next 20-30 days? Is this the only medication that you are on or are there others? The ideal answer is always, yes. However, if you are only going to take it for the next month it may not be worth your time to get a permanent bracelet. What I would recommend is that if you are taking other Meds then you get a medical bracelet that is a USB drive that you can continuously update, like EPIC-id. There are several other makers so choose one that you like, just make sure that it works on PC's as well as MAC's. I have not seen a lot of people use MAC's but it is best to be as ubiquois as possible.
Any thing that is long-term or permanent should alway have an alert bracelet, especially anti-coagulants. It is even more critical with Pradaxa, Eliquis, & Xarelto.
