The Anticoagulation Clinic is a service established to monitor and manage the medication(s) that you take to prevent blood clots. Physically, it is a specified location within a hospital or a medical office that is staffed by specialist physicians. The physician, working in conjunction with your pharmacist, will check your blood test and adjust your dose of warfarin (Coumadin® or Jantoven®) as well as other medicines that may be needed (such as heparin shots or Vitamin K, the antidote to Coumadin).

Understand your options in healthcare. Finger stick PT/INR measurements are both convenient and low cost.
Why is a special clinic needed to manage my medicine?

Warfarin can be a dangerous medicine if not closely monitored. While on warfarin, your blood clotting time or INR must be checked at least once a month, but more often when first starting this medicine, when changes are made to your other medications, or if your INR results are not within the therapeutic range.
