Went for my third visit to the INR clinic today and am now at 1.2, having been 1.1 prior to taking warfarin and since. I told the nurse I was worried about the lack of stroke protection. She spoke with the dr. who said that I was protected even at this level. Is this right? If so, why did I need to take it in the first place? Also, the leaflet and directions on how to take Warfarin states that it is best to take 10 mcgs for 2 days and then reduce.
I am new to all this, having recently been diagnosed. Any advice/information gratefully accepted.
