Over the course of several months my Pro-time INR readings have been satisfactory---requirng no change in Coumadin dosage.

"Suddenly" the readings became erratic-- to the extent that instead of monthly pro- times--I've had to have the INR checked weekly.

The only "new" drug I've been taking is Zyrtec.

I asked my PCP if Zyrtec can influence the INR. She replied-- "It's possible."

So I cut out the Zyrtec--even though it's been very helpful. After 2-3 weekly checks --sans Zyrtec----things are okay.

I wonder if any of your respondents
have had similar experience.

Thank you

Yes, it is possible for Zyrtec to cause that as a side effect, along with dizziness, headache, and dry mouth.

Have you consulted your doctor? They should be able to help you discover something you can safely take.

Are these the only medications you take regularly?
