Traditionally, anticoagulant drugs are prescribed to help reduce blood clots that can cause heart attacks, stroke, or cardiovascular death. Warfarin (marketed as Coumadin®) has been used for half a century. However, three next-generation anticoagulants—Pradaxa®, Xarelto®, and Eliquis®—have been approved in the last ten years by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
