I used to self manage before getting pregnant but since I've had my baby I've been getting my inr checked at my gp as it has been a bit up and down. They use a computer to dose me but I don't have much faith in it and often end up dosing myself anyway. For example today my inr was 1.8 but it has said to stay on the same dose until next Wednesday and then up it one mg then test again Thursday. This seems inaccurate to me as I would have increased my dose tonight as my inr will now be low until at least next week? The nurses doing the dosing don't seem to know anything about it so wondered what research has actually gone into this dosing system and if anyone else has problems? Thanks.
