the hospital put him on 81mg aspirin along with the warfarin he takes because his INR was 2.5 when we got here and has been in the mid 2s to low 3s for months. Just wondered if any more of you are on both aspirin and warfarin and how you are getting along with that. He also is suffering from severe anxiety since the stroke in August and is on Trazodone to help with sleep and Lorazepam when needed for the anxiety. He feels terrible every day in the mornings and says he feels better by late afternoon usually and then dreads bedtime because he has to start all over again. They now lowered the dose of the Trazodone as both the int med dr and then neurologist said they do not like to use Trazodone for the side effects and that he was taking too much blood pressure meds (heart rate too low) and cut that in half. Praying this all helps him to feel better. They want him to see a psychologist to help him get his anxiety under control and hopefully not with the use of more meds.
