First time dvt may not need treatment for so long. But if you r predisposed to recurrent dvt or your previous episode is not resolved then treatment may be needed.

I am 40. I had dvt three times (when I was 27 and 29 and 34) and after the third time my doctor prescribed me acitrom. Whenever I search for anticoagulant related information, I always get articles about warfarin. No articles refer to acitrom directly and very few refer t its constituent (nicoumalone). Why is this? Why would someone prescribe an almost non-heard-of medicine instead of something like warfarin? Is there a reason someone would prescribe this?

Acitrom is better. It has a longer half life and lesser interactions. It's believed to give more stable control of coagulation cascade rather than shorter acting drugs. Regards.

To clear your doubts get an 2DECHO done and follow up with reports and if your other vital parameters are normal than there is nothing to be done for occasional high pulse rate.

It is absolutely essential for you to be on anti-coagulant medications that will prevent further clot formation. Different types of medications are now available - Acitrom is one of those. If you are taking this then you should ensure that your INR is maintained in the range as prescribed by your doctor for the medicine to be effective. You should take warfarin diet. And donot remain immbolized for a long time, in long duration air flight wear stocking and keep moving your legs and toes. There are better medicines available as well which donot need INR testing and have lesser risk of causing bleeding but are slightly expensive than acitrom, you can discuss with your treating doctor regarding that.

Consult your Doctor In Depth Information on Acitrom Tablet Expert advice for Acitrom Tablet Good medication for preventing blood clots. For best results, take Acitrom at the same time every day. Requires regular blood test (PT-INR), to make sure Acitrom is working properly. Acitrom increases your risk of bleeding. Be careful while shaving, cutting fingernails or toenails, using sharp objects or engaging in contact sports (e.g. Football, wrestling). Notify your doctor if you see blood in your vomit, urine or stool (black, tarry stools or bright red blood). Interacts with food or other medicines; hence require frequent dose changes. If you are going to have a surgery or dental treatment, you may be asked to stop taking Acitrom temporarily. Acitrom should not be used in the pregnancy. You may breastfeed. Inform your doctor if you have ever been diagnosed with kidney or liver problems.

You need to take high fiber low fat diet followed by detox diet. Drink lot of water everyday. Take small and frequent meals at regular intervals of 2-3 hrs. Avoid outside food completely. Ask me privately for customized diet plan for you.
