    There are many types of anticoagulants that have been used to treat blood clots. They are as following,
    1, Vitamin K antagonists, for example Warfarin
    2, Heparin and derivative substances
    3, Synthetic pentasaccharide inhibitors of factor Xa, for example fondapatinux
    4, Direct Factor Xa inhibitors, such as rivaroxaban
    5, Direct thrombin inhibitors,  for example hirudin, lepirudin
    Some of the anticoagulants can cause bleeding problems.

    Asprin is the most common one since it's a blood thinner. Anything that warns you about being a blood thinner can be used to treat blood clots to some extent or another.

      Aspirin inhibits platelet aggregation. There really is no such thing as a "blood thinner." There are anticoagulants, such as heparin which inhibit clotting and there are "clot-busters" (thrombolytics) which dissolve clots.

    Mostly blood thinners. Aspirin is one of the most common. They are mostly for prevention but there are also some heavy duty blood thinners that they use if you have one.

    You could also try using garlic, ginger, poplar or cod liver oil.

    Medications which are commonly or popularly used for correcting blood clots include aspirin and clopidogrel  an oral antiplatelet agents, heparin  which is regarded as a blood thinner and anticoagulant, and clot busters  which are thrombolytic agents.

    I am no doctor, so I am hesitant in even mentioning this; however, (I did stay at a Holiday Inn once) when I was in a coma, a surgeon installed a Vena-cava filter where my leg arteries meet near my stomach. I understand this is not medicine (i.e. Heparin) although, I have found this to be a wonderful and logical solution to blood clotting in legs (at least). Any clots that do form have no chance of risng above the filter...
