You will need warfarin tablet.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
Blood clots in lung is known as pulmonary embolism.
Treatment depends on severity of symptoms, size of clots and location of clots.
So please tell me into detail about all these things.
Usually patient needs 5 days of enoxaparin (low molecular weight heparin) and 6-8 months of warfarin (oral anticoagulant drug).
If patient is smoker then he/she shoulder quits smoking as soon as possible.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
