The deep vein thrombosis- DVT treatment normally comprises of administering a medicine called anticoagulant. If you are suffering from such a condition, you will have to consult with a cardiologist who would evaluate for the deep vein thrombosis symptoms along with the signs of a blood clot before prescribing any medication. Some of the most common medications suggested by cardiologists to soothe the blood clot in leg include blood-thinning medicines. Although they are called so, they don't really make the blood thin but alters the protein content in the blood so that clotting of blood can be prevented. Warfarin and heparin are the two most commonly used anticoagulants for preventing the symptoms of blood clot in the leg. Generally, cardiologists refer to the heparin first as it can immediately relieve the symptoms of deep vein thrombosis. Then you may be asked to take warfarin so that the blood is not clotted further. The 2 most commonly found heparin variants are standard or un-fractioned heparin and LMWH or low molecular weight heparin. The standard one can be administered as an intravenous injection so that it directly enters the vein where the coagulation has taken place or as an intravenous infusion through which heparin is continuously fed through a small tube into the vein running through your arm which has to be done in a hospital. Cardiologists decide the amount of LMWH to be administered on the basis of the blood clot level.
