This medication works by preventing certain cofactors like fibrin and thrombin from functioning correctly. The active form of the drug binds and forms a complex with Antithrombin, which is an enzyme inhibitor. This leads to conformational changes, resulting in its stimulation via an increase in the flexibility of its reactive site loop. The generated antithrombin then disables thrombin and factor Xa involved in the clotting of blood.
Whenever you take more than one medicine, or mix it with certain foods or beverages, you"re at risk of a drug interaction.
