This four-page handout educates people about Coumadin (also called Warfarin), a type of medicine known as an anticoagulant or blood thinner, which helps stop clots from forming in the blood. It explains the necessity of a blood test called an INR (International Normalized Ratio) to adjust the dosage of Coumadin, and emphasizes that persons taking it should keep all blood test and doctor appointments. It provides guidelines for taking Coumadin, discusses precautions, and identifies those symptoms for which a doctor should be called, clarifying those for which to call 911.
