About MyBloodThinner.org

Launched in May 2006, MyBloodThinner.org is a project of SOS Rx, a medication safety coalition convened in 2004 by the National Consumers League (www.nclnet.org) with support from Express Scripts as founding sponsor.

SOS Rx (www.sosrx.org) is a collaborative coalition that includes participation by more than 80 consumer and patient safety organizations, physician, pharmacist, caregiver, and employer groups, and the government. The Coalition’s purpose is to make the outpatient use of medications safer, especially for senior citizens. The Coalition is dedicated to promoting outpatient medication safety. Our voice is national, our actions evidence-based, and our initial focus on senior citizens.

Meet the members of our advisory committee. Members of the media, please visit our Press Room.


This site focuses on blood thinners that are taken orally, such as warfarin (Coumadin), and the information included here should not be generalized for all blood thinners. Injectable blood thinners, such as Heparin, are different from oral blood thinners in what conditions they treat, how they are dosed and administered, and how they work in your body. 

 

Please note that it is not the intention of MyBloodThinner.org to provide specific medical advice, but rather to provide patients and caregivers with information to better understand their health and diagnosed conditions or that or their loved ones. This information is not a substitute for the medical advice of a qualified health care provider, and we urge you to visit a qualified physician for diagnosis and for answers to your questions.
