Argatroban Dosage

General Information on Receiving Argatroban

Some considerations to keep in mind during treatment with argatroban include the following:
 
  • This medication is given by a continuous intravenous infusion (an "IV drip"). Extra doses ("boluses") can be given if necessary.
 
  • You will be monitored closely, using blood tests, to make sure the dose is appropriate.
 
  • If you will be switched to warfarin (Coumadin®, Jantoven®), an oral anticoagulant, there will usually be a period of overlap when you will receive both medications. This overlap helps prevent blood clots, as the warfarin begins to work slowly.
 
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your dosage or argatroban dosing in general, please talk to your healthcare provider or pharmacist.
