I am 22 years old and got an unexplained PE about 3 months ago. Every time it seems like we finally coumadin level regulated, about 2 weeks after being on that dose my INR starts to drop again. I don't eat much with Vitamin K and have been regulating what I eat. Nothing seems to help. I'm already on 12mg and 15mg of coumadin alternating. Which is almost triple my grandmother's does and much more than any friends have ever been on.
You are on alot of coumadin. How often do you do your INR? I'm wondering if it was done daily for short time if it could be pinpointed what if anything you've done differently. If nothing else changes you may need further studies done of your clotting mechanism.
