I had a few clots 20+years ago , was diagnosed as having APS on warfarin for 5+ years. Then consistently tested negative for all clotting disorders. I came off warfarin and was just on Aspirin no problems for years. Have felt a bit 'off colour' for a few months and at the beginning of July discovered I had a smallish DVT. Still waiting for my clotting screen results.
I was on Fragmin and Aspirin until my INR was above 2.
Came up nicely - to 3.3 at 5 mg . Reduced dose. It dropped to 1.6. Increased my dose brought it up to 1.8, further increase to find it was 1.4 yesterday! (Diet is pretty standard, Vit K intake pretty steady)
That is less than 2 for 12 days. I'm away from home and had my INR done but my dosage done by my GP (phone). He has said to go back on onto the fragmin until my INR comes up. Went to see the local gp who refused to prescribe the fragmin.....but would be happy for me to take aspirin on the warfarin.
Anyone any experience of this?
Waiting for (supposedly) a prescription to be faxed etc after speaking to another GP at my home practice....but not sure that GP thinks the fragmin is a good idea...
