Benefits of anticoagulation therapy
If you are taking an anticoagulant (blood thinner) medication named Coumadin (warfarin), the St. Thomas More Anticoagulation Clinic can help you manage your medication therapy. The program is run by a pharmacist who will oversee your medication treatment plan.
Anticoagulants are very important for your health, but if mismanaged they can cause serious, disabling and even life-threatening bleeding or clotting problems.
