Coumadin - Hello to all. I am so relieved to find this site as I have felt so alone. I have recently
Added 8 Jan 2012:
Been placed on coumadin for the rest of my life. I am a 29 year old young mother of two. Since being diagnosed with antiphospholipid syndrome I have been on 7-10 mg of coumadin depending on my inr. Since taking this drug I have been suffering a small amount of depression, crying for no reason and a general lack of direction. Prior to coumadin I was a confident self assured happy pre-school teacher. Has anyone else had this issue with coumadin or am I just feeling self pity?
I know how you feel. When I discovered I had AFIB 5 months ago and put on warfarin, I was so scared and felt so hopless. But took charge of my life and found this site and read everything I could find. Watched what I ate. Kept a diary of what I eat. Look up Dr. Gourment Coumdin Diet. Don't eat the foods high in Vit K and your mg of coumadin will decrease. Take a good vit and min that does not contain Vit K. I feel good and working everyday. Good Luck to you. Praying for you!
