Re: how long does it take for lung clots to dissolve with Coumadin

It's hard to say, it depends on the size of the clot and the person. I would say weeks to months (or longer).

Re: how long does it take for lung clots to dissolve with Coumadin

Coumadin doesn't actually 'break up' a clot. It helps prevent current clots from getting worse and new ones from forming.
