My father has a blood clot and his doctor prescribed to him Coumadin. I’m afraid that he can get a stroke. I thought that this medication is used just for prevention. Now I don’t know will Coumadin help already present clots dissolve? Does anybody know something more about this? Thanks!

You have right. Coumadin does not dissolve a blood clot. It only prevent future clots not the ones that are already present. Coumadin makes our blood thinner, so it moves easier around the clot and quits feeding it. But the clot may dissolve on its own. Exactly, over time, the body will usually dissolve some of the clot.
