I have afib but don't fibrilate for long periods. Last one was 1-1/2 years ago, before that 4 years ago. But the doctors insist because of my age (80) and having had a brother who stroked and father died of heart disease I must take warfarin. Up till now the dosage was 6mgs 4 times and 9 mg. 3 times a week. Now my doctor has upped the dosage to 9 mg. every day. I've tried the new meds but don'te agree wth me. I don't like the dosage going higher every once in a while. I have no negative effects nor bruising at all but argue with the doctors about increasing the dosage just because my diet was different for that week. Going for an INR tomorrow and I'll see if my score is low enough to reduce the mg of warfarin. I tried cutting out the dark greens. I'll see tomorrow but the doctors are just as frustrated as me when I complain about the high mg. I live in USA.
Anyone know what the negatives of taking this much warfarin. I hate taking any drugs, but I do take magnesium and calcium and Diltiazam and that seems to work for not fibrillating.
