Yes! Feeling cold is one of the reported side effects of warfarin.
yes, you get cold very easy on warfrain. bouncybouncy in answering your question asked how you feel when it is low or high. If you will watch everything you eat, not lots of vit k foods, your INR will stay close to 2-3. Keep regular checks with your doctor. I have been on warfrain 5 months and can't really tell that I am on warfrain. I work everyday, although I get tired and learn to rest. Take a good multi vit and mineral that doesn't have vit k.
I take 12.5mg/day... and I shiver a lot. Yes, that is one of the side effects.
Thanks for all the comments re freezing while on warafrin. I was cold natured before I started warafrin approximately 5 months ago, now I literally freeze all the time. The cold seems to be from within... not too cold to the touch
