What kind of discussion did you have with your doctor before (s)he prescribed the Lodine? There is some controversy between studies that state that NSAIDs have been shown to alter the pharmacokinetics of warfarin and other oral anticoagulants, resulting in increased INR or prothrombin time while other studies find no problem.
