I want to know if there is any side effect to the knee if you have a cortisone injection in knee while taking coumadin ?
I just had a coritsone injection in my knee and I am on coumadin. I was shocked when I tested my blood levels a few days later (I self check) to find that my level which is normally between 2.0 and 3.0 was a whopping 6.1. After calls to my cardiologist, I was told that the coritisone injection could have had an effect on my coumadin. I am usually quite stable on coumadin and don't have spikes high or low, so this was a shock. It happened only once before in the 15 years I am on coumadin and that was when I was prescribed prednisone for an ear problem. I don't know if there was any side effect to my knee except it didn't really do much good.
