Blood-thinning medicines are drugs that help to prevent blood clots forming. They’re often prescribed after a transient ischaemic attack (TIA) or a stroke caused by a blockage (an ischaemic stroke). This factsheet explains the link between blood clots and stroke, and the types of blood-thinning medication that you may be prescribed to help reduce your risk of having a TIA or stroke. This publication is also available as a free download.
