Many people need to take anticoagulation medications to prevent excess blood clotting. Coumadin (Warfarin) is commonly prescribed for these patients and requires close monitoring. Illnesses, many medications, and some foods influence coumadin’s effect on blood clotting. Regular blood testing and dose adjustments are necessary to avoid bleeding while still preventing undesired clotting. Some patients need frequent medication adjustments. That’s where the expertise of Mayo Clinic Health System in Osseo's Anticoagulation Service comes in!
