New blood thinning drugs are appearing in rapid succession as the incidence of heart disease and other cardiovascular illnesses continue to rise. Some of them like Clopidogrel (marketed under the brand name Plavix), continue to be some of the top selling prescription medications in the United States. But blood thinners side effects can make the daily use of the medications problematic for some. And, in the case of serious and rare adverse reactions such as Clopidogrel side effects like hemorrhaging, these negative reactions to the blood thinning drugs can be quite serious. While each medication has its own list of adverse occurrences with Coumadin side effects being some of the most notable, there are some that appear as potential reactions in the large majority of medications used to thin the blood. We have compiled a list of the top ten blood thinners side effects that you should consider discussing with your health care provider before taking them to ensure that you fully understand both the benefits and the risks associated with the medication.
