Were you looking for information about Warfarin? Warafrin is a common misspelling of warfarin.
 
Warfarin sodium (Coumadin®, Jantoven®) is an anticoagulant medication often prescribed for the treatment and prevention of blood clots. It does not "dissolve" or break down blood clots; instead, it keeps clot formation in check, allowing the body's natural processes to break them down. People who take warfarin must follow certain dietary restrictions (some foods interact with this medication) and watch out for drug interactions. It is either taken by mouth or injected once a day.
