Since starting warfarin at the start of this year, and especially since upping the dose, my stomach has become more and more sore. Sometimes the soreness even creeps up my throat and into my mouth and I've learnt never to hold the tablets in my mouth while getting water to wash them down as that will make my mouth sore too! My GP has prescribed two different acid inhibitors, but they haven't done anything to help the problem. I also believe that while I have this problem my heart does more of a thudding beat. I can only guess that perhaps the acidity makes my stomach swell a little towards the heart and this causes me to feel the beat stronger.
Has anyone else had the same problem and switched to one of the newer anticoagulants successfully?
