About Exafib 20 Tablet 14's

Exafib 20 Tablet 14's belongs to a class of drugs known as anticoagulants or blood thinner. Exafib 20 Tablet 14's is primarily used to prevent and treat deep vein thrombosis (blood clots in leg veins) and pulmonary embolism (blood clots in the lung) by reducing blood clot formation. Deep vein thrombosis is a medical condition in which blood clots form in deep veins usually in the legs. Pulmonary embolism is a condition in which a blood clot blocks the arteries in the lungs.
