Syntrom review

Syntrom is an anticoagulant medication used to stop blood from clotting, mostly used to treat thrombotic disorders. These disorders obstruct the normal flow of blood in the blood vessels and may create serious health problems in the process. At other times, Syntrom is also referred to as a blood thinner. That is not to say; however, that the medication can actually thin the blood. It must be clear that Syntrom only prevents any more clotting from taking place but it does not have the capacity to dissolve the clots that have already formed in the blood vessels.

Syntrom is a very tricky medication. As such, it 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 Syntrom outweigh its positive effects to one's health, using the medication should no longer be questioned.

An anticoagulant medication such as Syntrom may have interactions with different conditions. Patients with histories of allergies, aneurysm, blood disorders, diabetes, hypertension, heart infection, liver disease, 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 openly discussed with your doctor. Certain medicines should not be used together. Your doctor will make any necessary adjustments to your dose is they foresee a possible interaction.

Syntrom is in pill form and is taken orally. Adults are typically prescribed 1 to 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 alter your dose unless directed to do so by your doctor. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you realize your mistake. If it is too near your next scheduled dose, skip the missed dose. This is better than doubling the dose as doing so might cause you to bleed. Keep a record of your schedule and doses taken so that you will decrease the possibility of a mishap.

Syntrom is effective in providing relief for harmful thrombuss; however, it also has some known side effects. Some signs of bleeding (in urine, in stools, in vomits) usually occur during treatment. If the bleeding becomes excessive, overdose is possible so you need to seek medical attention immediately. Patients under Syntrom treatment may also experience abdominal, chest, and dorsalgias, diarrhea, emesis, and dizziness. If those symptoms come with pyrexia or chills, however, you must consult your doctor immediately.

Any time you are taking Syntrom, you must be closely monitored by your doctor for the duration of your treatment. Keeping track of your progress would help your doctor determine how to adjust your dose.
