Warfarin for Blood Clot in Lung: My first bout with this drug was 2 years ago. Had a PE with for no apparent reason. Was taken off after 7 months. 2 years later admitted with 3 PEs again no apparent reason. Will remain on for the rest of my life which is just fine with me. I do have constant headaches, foot/leg cramps as well as feeling tired. First hand advice dont come off if you dont have a diagnosis, could be fatal. 2 stays in critical care, very scary. Keep your inr appointments.

Warfarin for Blood Clot in Lung: I got on warfarin 6 months ago after a pulmonary embolism. It has been a challenge to keep my INR in check. The fact that I haven't had any more clots is a good sign. I don't have the energy I used to before wafarin and I notice that my moods seem to swing pretty dramatically, patience levels are not great. Not sure if that is due to the warfarin or to the stress of all the stuff that has been going on since the surgery and subsequent clots. I hope to be off this stuff soon.

Coumadin for Deep Vein Thrombosis, Recurrent Event: I really do not like taking medications so I probably don't monitor it like I should. So far I have had no problems develop but it works effectively and side effects are minimal. Some cuts barely bleed while a small scratch may take awhile to stop depending on where the cut or scratch occurs. I have found that Coumadin regulates better than other warfarin but costs considerably more.

Warfarin for Blood Clot in Lung: I had clots in both of my lungs and did not know it. Thought it was a panic attack. Lucky they found it. I would rather deal with taking these meds forever and getting blood drawn frequently than dying from an embolism. So far so good. Miss the greens though.

Coumadin: The diet was very restrictive. Too much vitamin K could lead to clots and too little could lead to spontaneous bleeding. Any medical procedure reqiured going off coumadin before hand and going on lovenox shots to the stomach for a week.

Warfarin for Blood Clot in Lung: Has DVT in the left calf in 2003. Took warfarin for 6 months. Total body scan then did not show clots elsewhere. Extensive clots appeared in both lungs (sept 2008)One large clot blocked the pulmonary artery leading to the heart. Extensive test revealed Protein C deficiency. Knowing why i get clots is critical for me. I therefore welcome my warfarin which i will have to be on for life. I now no longer fear blood test as i monitor my INR regularly.

Warfarin for Blood Clot in Lung: At 24 I had a PE brought on by birth control. Been on Warfarin for 9 months and I haven't had many problems. At first I hated having to go in all the time for my INR, but now I know what to expect and it's bearable. I'd rather do this than get another clot or have a stroke. No thanks. Since being on Warfarin I have seen my sex drive drop and sometimes just feel like an old lady (no offense), just really run down and an overall blah feeling. At the end of this month we're taking me off of it so we'll keep our fingers crossed.

Coumadin for Prevention of Thromboembolism in Atrial Fibrillation: I was at a convention in Palm Springs when I was diagnosed with atrial fibrillation. Could not breathe, excruciating pain, scared to death. When I got to the ER my heart was beating at 180 beats per minute. The doctors told me the only thing that probably saved me from having a stroke was that I was already on Coumadin as I have a genetic blood disorder, factor 5 Leiden which means I will be on Coumadin for the rest of my life. My doctors are so cautious that they actually had a bird's nest inserted into my vena cava just in case a clot were to ever break lose. I have never had problems in the 6 years I have been on Coumadin. My INR is always at 2.5 which is considered perfect since my target range is between 2.0 and 3.0.

Warfarin for Blood Clot in Lung: I have been on warfarin for approximately 6 years. It eases my mind to know that it will help prevent another clot, however I seem to have moderate hair loss (when showering and combing my hair) and I bruise much easier. I monitor my INR weekly and still enjoy most of the foods I did before taking this medication. It is not about not eating things you like, just eating them in moderation.

Warfarin for Blood Clot in Lung: I had back surgery with a greenfield filter implant. This was used to prevent blood clots; of which I never had. Then I had a blood clot to go through my lung. The teck found eight blood clots in my left leg. My blood now is very thick and I have small veins; if the nurse can find any at all to check my warfarin level. Then she has a hard time getting my blood out When I go to the hospital the doctor has to use a pick line for IV's and to withdraw blood. On top of that it makes me sick. I get hot, sweat, nauseated to the point I have to lay down. I also take Lovenox when I have to have a pain injection because I have to be off the warafin for seven to fourteen day so my blood clots timely. Then I start on the warfarin again until the next injection. This happens once a month for three months straight.

Coumadin: I have had two episodes of thrombophlebitis with deep vein thrombosis diagnosed the first time with a veinogram, and the second time with an ultrasound. I was hospitalized 11 days each time and put on heparin through an IV with complete bedrest. When I was released I had follow up medication of coumadin for 6 months with prothrombin time testing every few days to moniter and adjust the dosages. After that I began developing vericose veins that I had treated with sclerotherapy and infrared venous closure procedures of the saphenous vein for venous insufficiency.

Warfarin for Blood Clot in Lung: I have been on and off this medicine for over 8 years now and will be on it the rest of my life. It works very well. Long story short I had a family emergency and missed my INR appointment I called to get a new one and only had 2 days of medicine left but they set it for a week later so I asked if they could call me some medicine in and they said no. The day before my appt. I was in pain. I went to the er and they admitted me telling me I was clotted from my knees to my kidneys. This was in 08 and I am lucky to be alive. I was in ICU for a month and ended up with a bleed on the brain. If I would have had these meds all that may not have happened. SO when they tell me I will be on this the rest of my life, I look at my children and say "GLADLY". I read one that said she had been off it for 2 months I would be careful especially if you need it. I do have 2 concerns that I can't seem to find answers to so if anyone can help please let me know. 1. My memory seems to be very bad now, not sure if it could be the medicine or the bleed on the brain/stroke. 2. I can't afford to go to the dentist like I should because of all the other bills, but it seems to me as if since I have been on the medicine that my teeth are getting more damaged.

Coumadin: Treatment included 2months of heparin injections in abdomen. Coumadin was given daily after the injections were stopped, at 6mg. The discontinuation of this medication caused an extension of the clot and re-admittance to hospital and another drug for blood thinning was given. Eventually, 6 months later, a doctor prescribed a compression stocking, which helped dramatically with swelling and pain. The Syntron blood thinner had no noticeable side-effects. Except possibly a still reduced libido.

Warfarin for Blood Clot in Lung: I took this medicine right after my second hip replacment surgury. I had already had a clot after my first hip replacment surgury. The medicine worked great but again had a very hard time keeping INR levels stable. I also just had a friend had a brain hemmorage and died dur to this medicine and not having his INR monitored often enough. This is a good drug but can also be very dangerous. If you take it, insist on having regular (weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly at the longest) bloodwork done to monitor your INR levels. Levels to High OR to low can have severe consequences.

Coumadin: After being diagnosed with thrombophlebitis and deep vein thrombosis twice - once in each leg - the first time through a veinogram and the second time through an ultrasound, I had 11 days in the hospital both times on IV heparin with complete bed rest while my clots which were in the saphenous vein all the way up to the femoral junction, were dissolving. After my release from the hospital I had 6 months of coumadin therapy. Through the years I have had sclerotherapy and infrared venous closure procedures. My vein disease has much improved except for capillary bruing/bleeding under the skin which would be considered more of a cosmetic problem, except that it bleeds in one spot that has come to my skin's surface when I bump it,scratch it, or hit it shaving.
