The term "blood thinner" is really not a medical term, and makes people think that blood gets "thinned out" when you take these medications, so it must be "thick" without them. Some people have too many clotting factors in their blood (which doesn't make it thick, just more likely to clot) and anticoagulants make that less likely to happen. Methamphetamine causes MANY other problems. Get help now
