Hi everyone, my husband is on warfarin in preparation for an ablation, he's only been on it a few weeks and his last INR was 2.4. He asked his GP about how much alcohol he could have and was told he could drink every night but not to excess, his advice was 4 to 5 pints max. This seems quite a lot to me but last night my hubby had 4 pints and a jack daniels, now I don't mind him drinking but I am really quite worried that this amount could be harmful. As we're new to all of this I'd really appreciate some advice or feedback as obviously I really wouldn't want him to bleed for the sake of alcohol but I don't want to nag him either if that amount is ok
