Well initially i was not keen to go on warfarin simply the inconvenience of having tests and working. However i eventually from last august had a break for some 6 weeks of visiting the hospital as my inr was 2.3. However when i went back and got tested my inr had dropped to 1.8 so back to weekly testing. I think the drop came because j went on a diet and was eating more healthy. I didnt have a clue about the foods i should avoid. Until i went on the af website so to learn that peas olives blueberries etc are not advised. I am now considering changing to one of the new drugs but i would welcome opinions about the pros and cons of the new drugs. I had contemplated getting a testing machine although initially my gp wasn't keen on prescribing them i think because of the cost of the strips but offered me the new drugs which he hadnt before. My pharmacist said they are good but costly i think i am worth it as i have worked for 45 years this year. Thoughts please.
