Free patient brochure on warfarin


The AHRQ today released a new patient brochure, "Your Guide to Coumadin/Warfarin Therapy," which explains what patients should expect and watch out for while undergoing therapy with the drug. Warfarin is second only to insulin in sending people to the ED for adverse events, the AHRQ says.

You can download the brochure via the link above, or order free copies by calling the AHRQ Publications Clearinghouse at (800) 358-9295, or by sending an e-mail to AHRQPubs@ahrq.hhs.gov.
