7 Medications for Pulmonary Hypertension


5. Anticoagulants.


Anticoagulants are important to help prevent blood clots from forming in the pulmonary arteries. Warfarin (Coumadin, Jantoven) is one of the more common anticoagulants prescribed.

Because of the possibility of serious or severe side effects, it is important to take this medication as the doctor prescribed and follow all included directions.
