I WAS on Lovenox. Last Monday my INR was 2.1 and the DR suspended Lovenox. At a DR appt on Friday my INR was 1.3 So the Coumadin was not in a therapeutic range of 2.0 ~ 3.0 yet the Dr did not have me go back on Lovenox. This is the 1st appointment I have had w/ this new Dr. Other things she suggested at that appointment did not give me confidence in her abilities as a Dr. Now I am questioning this move to D/C lovenox. Does her discontinuing the Lovenox while my INR is not in therapeutic range seem reasonable? This is my 3rd blood clot. The last one cause a PE.
Did she increase your coumadin? The lovenox has no effect on the inr and is not monitored with it. It would only take a day or 2 to have the inr where its supposed to be with an increase in the coumadin.
