In May this year I was advised to take an anti coagulant because of paroxysmal atrial flutter and SVTs. The A flutter has settled well with medication but anti coagulants are proving more difficult. I also have vasculitis.
I was first prescribed Apixaban and started taking it in August. This caused a gastric ulcer and oesophagitis and, after a diagnostic gastroscopy, Apixaban was discontinued. After a few week's break, I was started on Warfarin which I have been taking for just over a month. I was ok on a 2mg dose, and then on a 4mg dose. 10 days ago the dose was increased to 5mg, and 3 days ago increased again to 6mg. My INR has remained at 1 and I am suffering from nausea, loose motions, a sore stomach and dizziness. This started when the dose of Warfarin was increased to 5mg and has become worse with the 6mg dose increase.
I would appreciate any ideas on what to do next!
