I am on warfarin having decided, for various reasons, not to go onto one of the new anticoagulant drugs. The only drawback is the regular blood testing. Has anyone any experience of the self-testing kits such as CoaguchekXS system?
I was slightly concerned to read the NICE guideline which state that if you are out of the therapeutic range (in my case 1.7) you should be tested more frequently than my warfarin clinic states i.e. fortnightly. So, thought I should get my own kit. Any views, recommendations would be greatly welcomed.
