Been on Warfarin for 6m for PE found before emergency c-section. I concur with other responders-experiencing hair loss, less energy, mood changes/anxiety, however seems to be working. Has not affected my diet greatly, still eat salads etc., and even have occasional wine/beer without neg. effects on INR. Have Dr. appt. in 3 days for followup CAT scan and hopefully get the OK to discontinue use! ... Show Full Comment
