3 doctors agree

In brief: Agatroban

Agatroban is an anticoagulant.
Its use in pregnancy and gestational thrombocytopenia is not well known or studied. It is a class b drug and may be used in pregnancy if medically necessary but under strict monitoring by the physician. It may cause excessive bleeding with gestational thrombocytopenia.

In brief: Does not add up

Argatroban is an anticoagulant.
Why would you want to use an anticoagulant if you already have a tendency to bleed?
