Who should not receive antithrombin III?

Not everyone can receive antithrombin III. If you are taking certain medications, including aspirin and aspirin-like drugs, heparin, warfarin or mifepristone, they may interact with antithrombin III. Talk to your doctor about whether antithrombin III is right for you. Pregnant and breastfeeding women should use caution: Antithrombin III is a Category B drug, meaning that animal studies have not demonstrated a risk to a developing fetus, but there are no controlled studies in pregnant women. Talk to your doctor about the risks to a fetus and to a nursing infant.
