Accordingly, what are anticoagulants for?

Anticoagulants are used to treat and prevent blood clots that may occur in your blood vessels. Blood clots can block blood vessels (an artery or a vein). A blocked artery stops blood and oxygen from getting to a part of your body (for example, to a part of the heart, brain or lungs).

What is the best anticoagulant drug?

In the last few years, FDA has approved three new oral anticoagulant drugs – Pradaxa (dabigatran), Xarelto (rivaroxaban), and Eliquis (apixaban). Like warfarin, all three are 'blood thinners' that reduce the overall risk of stroke related to atrial fibrillation but they also cause bleeding.
