Coumarin derivative: Acitrom is a coumarin derivative similar to coumadin (warfarin). It is not available in the United States. It is a blood thinner intended to treat or prevent blood clot formation. Use of this medication in patients with cirrhosis can be life threatening & should be closely monitored by a physician. A therapeutic inr is between 2-3 or higher depending on the condition it is being used for. Consult your dr.
