Drugs: Thrombosis

February 15th, 2021


  • Medications Associated with Thrombosis

  • Hormonal therapies - oral contraceptives, hormone replacement therapy, SERMs
  • COX-2 inhibitors - celecoxib
  • Erythropoietin
  • Warfarin (initially)
  • Pearls

  • Warfarin is initially procoagulant in the first few days of its use, due to its inhibition of natural anticoagulants protein C and protein S.
  • Though tranexamic acid is a procoagulant, there is very little evidence that it increases thrombosis risk in a statistically significant way.
