Overview

Introduction of Acitrom Tablet

Acitrom 1 Tablet is an oral anti-coagulant which helps prevent the formation of harmful blood clots in the legs, lungs, brain, and heart. For best results, take it at the same time every day. It is required to get regular blood tests (PT/INR) done to make sure this medicine is working properly. This medicine can increase the risk of bleeding, so be careful while shaving, cutting nails, using sharp objects, or engaging in contact sports (e.g. football, wrestling). Let your doctor know if you see blood in your vomits, urine, or stool (black or tarry).
