Warfarin headache
Post a Reply
After a few weeks on a 5mg/day warfarin schedule I developed daily headaches in a specific area on the left side of my head. When I consulted my cardiologist I was told that warfarin doesn't cause headaches. I had to continue taking the medication because I had 2 previous episodes of atrial flutter. I had just changed my primary care physician and mentioned the headaches. He for some reason decided to check my vitamin B12 level. It was too low. I started taking a 1000mcg tablet daily. My headaches started to occur less frequently with less pain within about three weeks and after 8 weeks were gone. Hope this helps someone.

Coumadin vs warfarin
38 Replies RSS
My mom was on coumadin for many years but then her insurance company told her she had to take warfarin as this is the one they would pay for. Is there really any different in these two drugs? It seems to me that she has been having more problems with the warfarin (keeping this medication at the right level) than the coumadin. I was told they were the same medications and do the same. I just wanted to know if some people have difficulties taking warfarin vs coumadin??? Thanks. ## No, they work exactly the same for me. I have been taking one or the other for 3 1/2 years because of 2 pulmonary embolisms. I take 10mg a day. At times I go up and down but have been steady for a couple months now on warfarin. Food will change the way it works. Salads and some other greens really mess things up...

Xeralto 20mg side effects
Post a Reply
I was on warfarin for 16yrs but after such a long time taking between 15-20mg a day my doctors took my off warfarin. I started Xeralto 2 weeks ago, a week ago i had a lumbar and cervical pain block. I now have extremely low blood pressure, when i get up or move around i black out, i have no balance and i experience ringing noise in my ears, disorientation, blurred vision and I feel horrible. I am at the point to stop the drug as i am in bed all the time, i cant do simple things like showering or washing hair on my own. The risk of falling and bumping my head could be fatal. I am also very bloated, retaining water and experience pain in my legs after having a cervical and lumber pain block a week ago in theatre. I honestly dont know what to do. So many people are complaining about aweful si

Warfarin - wrong dose on different day
Post a Reply
A caregiver has given a lady 4 mg of warfarin but the chart stated that she only needed 3 mg. Tomorrow she is to have 4 mg. If she gives her 3 mg instead of 4 mg will this be a big problem? She is still getting the doses she needs.

diatomaceous earth with warfarin
3 Replies RSS
my husband takes warfarin daily, we are wondering if taking diatomaceous earth to help lower cholesterol and blood pressure with his warfarin would effect anything? ## Unfortunately, this is just a supplement product, so it has not actually been checked for interactions with prescription drugs. Thus, the best advice I can give would be that he check with his doctor or pharmacist, before taking it. Learn more Warfarin details here. When taking Warfarin, one's INR can be very touchy, so it's always best to be cautious. Are there any other questions or comments? ## Verwon supplements are so popular today they should know if DE would interact with warfarin um I mean RAT poison.......... And, why is it that almost all crucial supplements like Vitamin K2 have a negative effect on warf...
