Warfarin 5 mg

Warfarin sodium (Coumadin®, Jantoven®) is a prescription anticoagulant is used for preventing and treating blood clots due to various causes. It comes in tablet form and is available in various strengths, including:
 
  • Warfarin 1 mg

  • Warfarin 4 mg
  • Warfarin 5 mg
  • Warfarin 6 mg

  • Warfarin 10 mg.
     
Warfarin is not dosed like most other medications -- dosing must be individualized for each person. Taking too little increases your risk for blood clots and strokes, and taking too much increases your risk for dangerous internal bleeding. A dose that is safe and effective for one person may be too high or too low for another person.
 
Several factors may cause your warfarin dosage to be adjusted. Often, starting or stopping another medication (or even just changing the dosage) can affect dosing requirements, since many medications interact with warfarin. Changes in the diet can also affect dosing requirements. Sometimes, there is no apparent reason for the change, which is why frequent monitoring is necessary, even for people who are stable on a given dose.
