Were you looking for information about Coumadin? Comodin is a common misspelling of Coumadin.
Coumadin® (warfarin sodium) is a prescription medication used to prevent and treat blood clots. As an anticoagulant, it works to inhibit blood clotting by decreasing the formation of certain active clotting factors. Coumadin can keep clot formations in check, allowing the body's natural processes to break down the clot, but does not actually "dissolve" blood clots. Although this is a life-saving drug, it can cause life-threatening side effects. This is why it is important that people taking Coumadin be monitored closely.
