I quit warfin after I had a bleeding spell (nearly 24 hours) due to a nurse taking blood. I tried to talk to the Pharmacist telling him that everything I had read said that I could have two drinks a day. He started giving me orders and then refused to talk with me. He then got PO'd and threw me out of the program!
It doesnt' pay to argue with a pharmacist, they have allot more education then you do, regarding meds. You can't just stop warfarin if you are at a clotting risk. Talk to your dr. The reason he doesn't want people to drink is because it can cause liver damage and that can cause bleeding problems.
