About WARF 3MG TABLET

WARF 3MG TABLET belongs to a class of drugs known as anticoagulants or blood thinner. WARF 3MG TABLET 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 the formation of a blood clot. Deep vein thrombosis is a medical condition in which blood clots form in deep veins usually in legs. Pulmonary embolism is a condition in which blood clot blocks the arteries in the lungs.

WARF 3MG TABLET works by inhibiting the production of clotting factors by decreasing the action of vitamin K. This prevents the conversion of fibrinogen (soluble protein) to fibrin (insoluble protein) thereby preventing blood clots formation.

Take WARF 3MG TABLET preferably with or without food and swallow whole with a glass of water. Do not crush, chew or break it. Your doctor will advise you how often you take your tablets based on your medical condition. Some people may experience unusual bleeding or skin rash. Most of these side effects of WARF 3MG TABLET do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your doctor.

If you are known to be allergic to WARF 3MG TABLET or any other medicines, please tell your doctor. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, it is advised to consult a doctor before using WARF 3MG TABLET. If you have a stomach ulcer, kidney or liver problems, high blood pressure or bleeding problems, inform your doctor before taking WARF 3MG TABLET. It would help if you had frequent 'INR' or prothrombin time tests to measure your blood-clotting time, as WARF 3MG TABLET prolongs bleeding time. You must be cautious while shaving and brushing teeth to avoid too much bleeding from the injury site.
