Our Prothrombin Time with INR (PT/INR) Test measures how long it takes for your blood to form a clot (coagulate). Anticoagulants (anti-clotting medications) change the way your blood clots. Warfarin is a commonly prescribed anticoagulant, or blood thinner, that prevents blood from clotting. Anticoagulant therapy must be carefully monitored to make sure the dosage is right for the patient; otherwise, severe and persistent bleeding or excessive blood clotting (hypercoagulation) can occur.
