Reviews for Warfarin
For Prosthetic Heart Valves, Mechanical Valves - Thrombosis Prophylaxis: "13 years usage. That is a lot of lab tests. I try to not change eating habits but mess up from time to time and then it affects my INR"

For Heart Attack: "This was recommended to my brother in law last year and he almost died from it, severe and I mean severe diarrhea, falling all over the place, it was terrible then my sister told the clinic she would not let him take any more and from that day he just improved back to his normal self, in December last year 2016, my sister had a mild heart attack and she is now on Warfarin, she has exactly the same symptoms though not as bad, I have urged her to take it up with her own GP which she will do in three days time, what I don't understand is every "specialist" says that you should avoid Aspirin when taking Warfarin so why do they prescribe them together? STRANGE"

For Antiphospholipid Syndrome: "I found this today be a lifesaver, but at the same time it has cut years off what life I had. I have aged faster, have little energy to do things, my INR is not very stable, my memory is not what it once was (I used to be called a walking phonebook/dictionary by my ex), etc. Now all of these things MAY be attributed to something else, but I have my sincere doubts."

For Deep Vein Thrombosis, First Event: "I did not realize that warfarin would have this side effect of hair loss. I take 15 mg three times a week, and ten milligrams for four days. My hair has not come out in clumps; however, I do notice my scalp. This is my 5.5 years if Coumadin and Lovenox. I started when I was 34 and now 40...for life. I hope I do not lose clumps, but I mask it with a hair cut...just tell myself I am taking rat poison. I am allergic to all the new drugs. Doing better than most of you, but when I developed a blood clot in my underarm and two veins deep in my chest...no surgery...took 2 years to actually eliminate the clot, but destroyed my left side of my body"

Coumadin (warfarin) for Prevention of Thromboembolism in Atrial Fibrillation: "Developed atrial flutter then atrial fibrillation several years post-op. This and beta-blocker really straightened it out. Cardiologist took me off Coumadin a few years ago for a month. He had to put me back on it due to flutter that just wouldn't quit... took a few weeks to straighten me out again. It was his idea, not mine. Only drawback is monitoring amount of green vegetables eaten every day and need a PT drawn every 2 weeks or so."

Coumadin (warfarin) for Deep Vein Thrombosis Prophylaxis after Knee Replacement Surgery: "Broken femur resulted in blood clots that caused life threatening embolism. I was given the generic warfarin and rapidly devoped THRUSH. Switched to brand name COUMADIN and recovered after 9 days in hospital."

For Heart Attack: "Dad has been on warfarin/Coumadin for over 10 years. He started taking it after he had a triple bypass. He has since had two stents, one at a time. He is 83 years old, and has been getting along great. He recently got sick, went to hospital. All of his symptoms could have been side affects from the warfarin. The doctors would not put down a reason for his getting ill. I would give warfarin a good rating. By the way, if you start interacting with cartoon characters on TV, or can watch a movie, just by closing your eyes, don't be alarmed. You're not alone. Just try to have fun with it. That's what dad does."

Coumadin (warfarin) for Deep Vein Thrombosis, Recurrent Event: "Was on Coumadin for 4 years. Walked away due to headaches daily. Got another clot. It may have been worth the couple months of no headaches, no fussy head, no feeling stupid, loosing my sight (which is old age, but still the timing), but the anxiety of knowing my body will clot along with a new clot put me back on Coumadin. Finally got the news about Xarelto. Life changing to say the least. No way to reverse dose, I take the risk for a better life. Besides the half life is only 5 to 9 hours for under 45 yr old and 11 to 13 hours for older. Take it with dinner and you are sleeping that whole time."

For Pulmonary Embolism, First Event: "I am so thankful to be alive. I had a pulmonary embolism in Jan 2011. They had my family in family room, didn't expect me to survive. BUT, GOD said differently. I am so THANKFUL. "

For Pulmonary Embolism, Recurrent Event: "I have multi Blood Clots in both Lungs. I've been on Warfarin 5mg since Mar 2012, prior to that I had a blood clot in one lung back in 2007 following surgery. My experience has been devastating like a walking Time Boom. I'm Alive thanks to my Doctors and my meds. My INR ranges 2.0 / 3.2 I now get my Pro-Time check once monthly. However I'll be on warfarin for the rest of my Life. Just have to be extra careful on any other meds my Doctor puts me on."

For Pulmonary Embolism, Recurrent Event: "I was 39 years old at my first clot after surgery. I went off Coumadin after a year. Then had a pulmonary embolism and was put back on Coumadin. My INRs had great fluctuations. I now have my own home Coagucheck and adjust my Coumadin with a Dr's supervision and no clot since. I have had side effects but no clots since then."

For Antiphospholipid Syndrome: "This condition led to a stroke for me, so this medicine has been a lifesaver and has given me peace of mind. I also have a great Doctor and nurse in his office who has guided me through the proper use when needed and I even test my own INR."

Coumadin (warfarin) for Prevention of Thromboembolism in Atrial Fibrillation: "I was at a convention in Palm Springs when I was diagnosed with atrial fibrillation. Could not breathe, excruciating pain, scared to death. When I got to the ER my heart was beating at 180 beats per minute. The doctors told me the only thing that probably saved me from having a stroke was that I was already on Coumadin as I have a genetic blood disorder, factor 5 Leiden which means I will be on Coumadin for the rest of my life. My doctors are so cautious that they actually had a bird's nest inserted into my vena cava just in case a clot were to ever break lose. I have never had problems in the 6 years I have been on Coumadin. My INR is always at 2.5 which is considered perfect since my target range is between 2.0 and 3.0."

For Pulmonary Embolism, Recurrent Event: "I was first diagnosed with Pulmonary Embolism in 9/2007 and was on Warfarin for 3-6 months. Over the next 2-3 years I would get blood clots in the legs but never too serious again. Then in Late March 2010 Guess what was back, you guessed it Pulmonary Embolism. I was told this time that I would have to take this medicine for the rest of my life. I am only 39 years old and I feel so helpless that I have this happen to me. But I am alive and I will do what I need to do to stay that way....Please don't ignore the symptoms."
