Q. What should I avoid while taking Acitrom?

You should avoid alcohol while taking Acitrom as alcohol may interfere with working of Acitrom. In addition to that, avoid cranberry juice or other cranberry products as there may be a risk of enhanced blood thinning. Avoid breastfeeding or getting pregnant as it may harm your child.

Depending on the type of surgery that is to be performed, your doctor will tell you whether to continue or stop Acitrom. It will be decided by your doctor after weighing the risks and benefits of discontinuing Acitrom.

Q. Is Acitrom same as warfarin?

Both Acitrom and warfarin are blood thinners, but they have some differences. Warfarin has a more stable blood thinning effect.

Q. How long does it take for Acitrom to start working?

It takes a little longer for Acitrom to start working. On an average, it may take 3-4 days for Acitrom to show its blood-thinning effect. For these 3-4 days, heparin may be used and then discontinued.

Q. What if I forget to take a dose?

If you forget to take a dose of Acitrom, take it as soon as you remember. However, if it is time for your next dose then skip the missed dose. Do not double the dose and continue your normal schedule. Keep a diary or set a reminder, so that you do not forget it often.

The bleeding times should be carefully monitored from 2nd or 3rd dose of Acitrom and till the clotting status is stabilized. Thereafter, the bleeding time can be monitored monthly. This frequency may be more in elderly.
