what happens to a person who is taking cummiden and there level gets to high???
Coumadin is not a blood thinner, it is an anticoagulant. This means that it interferes with the bodies ability to stop bleeding. This is beneficial to people with blood clots,
or have implants like artificial heart valves, or other conditions where you want to increase the clotting time. People on drugs like this should be monitored on a regular basis and have the Pro-time measured to determine and maintain the proper the ɾąքҽ utic dose. If the dose gets too high the person may have a very serious bleeding condition. How serious depends on how high the levels of the drug are. Coumadin was derived from a byproduct of a fungus, called warfarin that is used in certain rodent poisons.
