Blood-Thinning Medication

If your doctor prescribes a blood-thinning medication, it is important to regularly check the medication's effect on your blood. If your blood remains too thick, it could result in clotting. If it becomes too thin, it increases your risk of bleeding.

At the Renown Institute for Heart and Vascular Health’s Anticoagulation Program, pharmacists and nurse practitioners monitor your lab results so they can tailor your medication dosage while offering counseling and education about your medical condition. Some of these medications include:

  • Warfarin (Coumadin)
  • Enoxaparin (Lovenox)
  • Dabigatran (Pradaxa)
  • Rivaroxaban (Xarelto)

If you are taking a blood-thinning medication, ask your doctor about a referral to The Anticoagulation Program.
