If you’ve been diagnosed with an abnormal heart rhythm, such as atrial fibrillation or afib, your doctor may recommend taking blood thinners, also called anticoagulants. These medications reduce the blood’s ability to clot, lowering your risk of stroke.
What are Blood Thinners?
Blood thinners prevent blood clots, which can stop blood flow to the heart. Learn about how they work, who should take them, side effects, and natural remedies. Blood thinners are medications taken orally or intravenously (through a vein) to prevent a blood clot. Blood clots can stop the flow of blood to the heart, lungs, or brain. They can cause a heart attack or stroke. Your doctor may recommend taking a blood thinner if you have heart disease, including heart valve disease, and irregular heart rhythms. Blood thinners must be taken exactly as directed. When you don’t take enough, the medication won’t be as effective. Taking too much can lead to severe bleeding. Some blood thinners thin the blood to keep blood cells from sticking together in the veins and arteries. Others prevent blood clots by increasing the amount of time it takes for blood clots to form.
There are two different types of blood thinners: Anticoagulants lessen coagulation, or the process by which your blood clots. PRADAXA and warfarin fall into this category. Antiplatelets prevent blood cell fragments (platelets) from sticking to the walls of your blood vessels and each other. Examples of anticoagulants include: Dalteparin (Fragmin), Apixaban (Eliquis), edoxaban (Lixiana), Rivaroxaban (Xarelto),Warfarin (Coumadin), Dabigatran (Pradaxa).
If you’re at risk for a heart attack or stroke, blood thinners can be lifesaving medications. Be mindful as these medications can also have serious side effects. Side effects include the following: the risk of dangerous heavy bleeding. Blood thinners may cause side effects in some people. Excessive bleeding is the most common reaction. It can occur in a variety of ways, including: heavy periods, bloody or discolored urine or feces, nosebleeds, bleeding gums, prolonged bleeding from a cut. Other side effects can include: dizziness, muscle weakness, hair loss and rashes. The presence of blood thinners in your system can increase your risk of internal bleeding after an injury. Go to the hospital right away if you experience any of these side effects after falling or bumping your head — even if you don’t have external bleeding. Your doctor may tell you to limit your participation in contact sports to reduce the risk of bleeding. However, this doesn’t mean you can’t exercise or live a normal life. Swimming, walking, and jogging are excellent forms of exercise and are safe for most people taking anticoagulants. Discuss with your doctor which types of exercise may be best for you.
Blood thinners are often prescribed to reduce the risk of blood clots and stroke in people with atrial fibrillation (AFib) not caused by a heart valve problem, who are at high risk of blood clots. The name blood thinner can be misunderstood, as blood thinners don’t actually “thin” your blood. In fact, blood thinners work by lowering the chances of blood clots forming in your body. There are lots of options for blood thinners. Your doctor will take into account your health history, age, weight and kidney and liver function before determining which blood thinner might work best for you.
