Do novel anticoagulants interact with other medicines?

Douglas E. Severance, MD
Family Medicine
Research shows that a novel anticoagulant may be less likely to interact with other drugs. For instance, aspirin does not seem to interact with a novel anticoagulant. Other types of novel anticoagulants may be similar to warfarin in terms of their interactions with other drugs. To be safe, always tell your doctor about any drugs or over-the-counter supplements, including herbal therapies, that you are taking. Your doctor can determine if changes need to be made to avoid serious drug-drug interactions.
