In general we prescribe the anticoagulant drugs for 3 months post DVT attack unless he has risk factor for recurrence. So , he will require dose modification . he may continue with half dose with closely monitored PT & INR for another 45 days. if bleeding occurs, need to stop again.
pt will require dose in accordance to PT /INR also need to do USG abd to see any problem in urinary bladder
