Coumadin Overview

Warfarin, sold under the brand name Coumadin among others,[1] is a medication that is used as an anticoagulant (blood thinner).[4] It is commonly used to treat blood clots such as deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism and to prevent stroke in people who have atrial fibrillation, valvular heart disease or artificial heart valves.[4] Less commonly it is used following ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and orthopedic surgery.[4] It is generally taken by mouth but may also ...

Lightheadedness and dizziness with taking coumadin
5 Replies RSS
Has anyone else gotten Lightheadedness and dizziness from Coumadin. I have been told this doesn't happen and I would be the first. My Coumadin therapist has never heard this. I don't believe that ## I find it hard to believe your therapist too, since there are a good number of webpages listing: headache, dizziness, weakness, fainting, nausea, and even flu-like symptoms as side effects of Coumadin (warfarin). All your therapist had to do was google "Coumadin side effects" and he would've known this to be the case. Here's one of many side-effect listings that show what symptoms you're describing: I have to wonder if he's really lying or simply doesn't know how to use the internet. In any case, I hope t...

Gas-X and Coumadin
2 Replies RSS
I am on Coumadin, and am in the middle of an IBS attack.....I'm wondering if Gas-X affects the Coumadin level or is it safe to take while on it??? I'm not going in for a pro-time for the Coumadin for another week, so would really like an answer. ## Coumadin contains the active ingredient Warfarin, it is most commonly used a blood thinner. There aren't any interactions listed for it when taken with Gas-X, but this site is not medical professionals, so you should double check with your doctor or pharmacist to be certain. You can read more about this medication here: Is there anything else I can help you with? ## I want to take gasx being on warfarin not not if it a problem.

Warfarin (Coumadin) and PT-INR levels
11 Replies RSS
I am 19 years old and have had 4 blood clots so far due to a birth control pill. I have to go every week and get my INR levels checked. Right now I am taking 4 mg on even days and 5 mg on odd days. My levels go from 1.7 to 4.4 to 3.8 to 2.4. I really dont like going every week to get my finger poked, especially at my age. Is there a recommendation that anyone can give me, like a different blood thinner, that I can talk to my doctor about? Or just any advice will help. Thanks ## Hi Julie, I'm sorry to hear about your situation, that sounds rough. I don't have any experience with blood thinners so unfortunately I can't recommend any new ones to you, but according to live, there are foods that act as natural blood thinners. Maybe you incorporate some of these foods i...

neck surgery and coumadin
3 Replies RSS
Hi I have a mechanical aortic valve I am on coumadin for life. I need surgery for my neck. I am so afraid of bleeding into spinal cord or clots. I will have to do a bridge but am very nervous. Does anyone have any advice ## What is the problem with your neck? And who is advocating the surgery? ## I was rear ended in car accident. . I have a couple herniated disks. I have done alot of other treatments for over a year. A ortho surgeon said he could probably get 70 percent of pain gone ## Personally, I do not like the knife to get rid of a problem, even when serious. Alternative medicine gives you the option of getting rid of 100% of the pain, but it will take time. I do not know where you live, but there are great alternative doctors every where. Whenever you are dealing with the spine ...

Coumadin vs Warfarin
2 Replies RSS
Been on Coumadin for 22 years no problems.... Insurance wants me to take Warfarin. Doctors prefer brand name because I am the first person in the US with four artificial heart valves. Afraid to make the switch but price is very high on pension. Really don't want to switch. Afraid. Any thoughts. Would like some doctors to respond. ## Dear Kathy, Judging from your unique and isolated circumstance, it sounds like it would be best to try and stay on what you know already works. There's an old sayin' that says, "don't try to fix what isn't broken" - and it sounds like insurance companies will try to do just that by forcing you onto something different based on their own personal preference instead of what's logically sound. But If insurance isn't going to ...

names of current blood thinners

names of current blood thinners and side effects ## There are many different types of blood thinners (prescription and natural): "Multiple Names of Blood Thinners can often apply to the same drug. For example, Coumadin is the brand name for warfarin, and Clexane and Lovenox are two different brand Names of Blood Thinners for one type of heparin drug. Some of the most common blood thinners are listed in the link below. Both the brand names and generic Names of Blood Thinners are included:" Also included in that link is a list of side effects associated with these blood thinners. If you take a look at the top left of the page you'll find a tab that says "side effects of blood thinners". I hope this information helps! ## Is Metroplolol the beta blocker a blood thinner?

Coumadin vs NOACs, and INR testing
1 Reply RSS
I know someone with AFib and I am trying to compare the pros and cons of Coumadin vs NOAC. Also the doctor said Coumadin requires INR testing and NOAC does not. Is this really a benefit? Is INR testing really that cumbersome? As far as I know the INR testing needs to be done at Anticoagulation Clinics or use a home-monitor device. Has anyone found home-monitor better than clinics in terms of data transfer to the doctor? I am not sure if the clinics at CVS and Duane Reade offer the test. I am trying to collect as much information as possible, so any guidance and feedback is appreciated. ## Most people prefer the other medications, due to the fact that INR testing must be done very regularly, requiring a finger stick, which may be painful… and most doctors will not let you have it d...

vitamin k
2 Replies RSS
used for rat poisoning in humans ## It's sad to see things were to scared to test on ourselves being tested on animals; even rats. In the case of supplements or Vitamin K in this instance, you never know exactly what they do in their testing facilities to ensure it works the way they want it to work. Word of advice: Get your vitamins and minerals from whole fresh ripe raw organic fruits and vegetables, and you can be assured you are getting plenty of what you need if you incorporate this eating habit on a regular basis. You are also doing the rats (and other animals) a favor by not supporting and buying into these failed products. ## Vitamin K is an essential nutrient that is vital for calcium metabolism, blood clotting, heart health and much more. Usually the blood thinner called C...
