One of the anticoagulant medication used to stop blood
from clotting is Sintrom
. It is typically used to treat thrombotic disorders, which obstruct the normal flow of blood in the blood vessels
and can create serious health problems in the process. Sintrom may also be referred to as a blood thinner. That is not to say; however, that the medication can actually thin the blood. To be clear, Sintrom does not have the capacity to dissolve the clots that have already formed in the blood vessels; it only prevents any more clotting from taking place.
A very tricky medication, Sintrom must be used with utmost care and only under the supervision of a health care professional. The required dose is determined based on the patient's condition as well as their body's ability to handle the side effects of the medication. If the risks of taking Sintrom outweigh its positive effects to one's health, using the medication should not be considered.
An anticoagulant medication like Sintrom may have strong reactions with different conditions. Patients who have histories of allergies
, aneurysm, blood disorders
illness, ulcers and those who had given birth recently must take extra precaurinary tract infectiononary measures in using the medication. Their current medical conditions might alter the way their bodies respond to an anticoagulant. Any type of medicine that you are currently taking must be discussed with your doctor. Certain medicines should not be used alongside each other. If an interaction is foreseen, your doctor will make the necessary adjustments to your dose.
Sintrom comes in tablet form and is taken orally. Typically, adults are advised to take between 1 and 10 milligrams of the medication every day, depending on their blood test results. Children, especially the young ones, are sensitive to anticoagulants. They must undergo a series of tests to ensure that the dose will not increase their risks of bleeding for the duration of the treatment. Never change your dose unless directed to do so by your doctor. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you realize your mistake unless it is too near your next scheduled dose. If this is the case, then skip the missed dose. It is better than doubling the dose as doing so might cause you to bleed. Keep a record of your dosing schedule. That way, you decrease your chances for mishaps.
As much as Sintrom is effective in providing relief for harmful blood clots
, it also comes with ugly side effects that might cause discomfort. Different signs of bleeding (in urine, in stools, in vomits) usually occur during treatment. If bleeding becomes excessive, overdose may be present and you need to seek medical attention immediately. Patients on a Sintrom treatment may also experience abdominal, chest, and dorsalgias, diarrhoea, emesis, and dizziness
. If those symptoms come with fever
or chills, you must consult your doctor immediately.
When using Sintrom, you must be closely monitored by your doctor for the duration of your treatment. Keeping track of your progress will help your doctor determine how to adjust your dose.
