My INR has halved and I am now 1.8 at today's test. The phlebotomist said she knew it was going to be low as she was the doing the test because my blood was very sticky and I knew because I had a bad headache, tingly face and tongue and felt dizzy.
She said I needed to see a dr. The dr rang me this afternoon and said he didn't know what to do but suggested taking aspirin for 3-5 days as well as my warfarin which has been increased to 8mg.
When I went to our village pharmacy to get the aspirin the pharmacist said that she strongly disagreed - she seemed to know a lot about APS and said she thought I should give the increased warfarin a chance to work. She said aspirin and warfarin is a dangerous combination even for 3 days if unsupervised. . She did say keep up the paracetamol I have been having for the headache and tingliness which have improved since I started paracetamol at breakfast.
Any thoughts on aspirin and warfarin would be appreciated as I feel sure this will be brought up again by my dr. .
