How Coumadin works

I was asked recently for information on how Coumadin works to prevent clotting. He had just started taking warfarin and was keen to learn everything about the drug he was taking.

I came across this great video which shows through clever animation how Coumadin acts to break down clots. The pharmacist in the video also explains how Coumadin works, why doctors prescribe it as a blood thinner, and common side effects.

It is an informative video with warnings about side effects, symptoms to alert your doctor about and its interaction with other medications.

Thank you to Heath Guru for use of the video.
