Hi Anonymous,

When a blood clot is already being treated with Warfarin, there are no restrictions. Continue with your treatment and go on about your day normally.

To prevent future blood clots:
The main risk factor for deep vein thrombosis risks is immobilization. It is important to move around routinely so that blood can circulate in the venous system. On long trips, it is recommended to get out of the car every couple of hours and in an airplane routinely get up and stretch.

Good Luck,
