Dipyridamole And Esp. COX-2 inhibitors are Pentoxifylline NOT to be substituted for aspirin. Anticoagulants Anticoagulants • Therapeutic Uses – venous thrombosis (prevention or treatment) • preventative if circulation sluggish, i.e. bed rest, myocardial infarction, polycythemia – prevention coronary thrombosis - especially if atherosclerosis present – atrial fibrillation or valve disease where blood not emptied from heart • Side or Toxic Effects – hemorrhage - clotting time should be closely monitored – bleeding may occur from G.I. tract, gums, nose, uterus, etc. – 25% of deaths from G.I. bleeding Anticoagulants Anticoagulants • Cautions or Contraindications – – – – – patients with bleeding tendencies ulcers or carcinomas of G.I. tract pregnancy - risk of abortion severe liver or kidney disease avoid IM injections -- muscle too vascular and may cause hematoma *Patients should carry MEDALERT in case of emergency – drug interactions can be very serious • phenobarbital - incr. deactivation by liver - need more anticoagulant to prevent thrombosis • phenylbutazone (treats gout) - displaces anticoagulant from plasma protein – (97%...
