Comment:
I took this drug for 7 years for Atrial Fibrillation. It did not affect my quality of life. You can eat greens, as long as you always eat greens, so they can set the dosage accordingly. Eight months ago I had open heart surgery at the Minnesota Mayo Clinic for Hypertropic Obstructive Cardiomyopathy and while there were in there, I asked them to do the Afib ablation.

This stuff is poison!

Yes, I get random and frequent nose bleeds b ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I had an Aortic Valve Replacement in May of 2007 and I have been on Coumadin ever since. I get my blood checked every 6 weeks and eat whatever I want. PT-INR should be between 2.5 and 3.5; mine is always in the range. I take 12.5mg 3 times a week and 10 the other 4 days. I have never had any side effects, but I do agree with one other review, take Coumadin and not Warfarin if you can afford it; ... Show Full Comment
