Hi all! I've had APS for years and have now developed Lupus also. Doctor says it will be a few more months before I know if the Plaquinil is working for me. My question is, Has anyone used an Alere home inr machine. My coumadin nurse is really pushing for it. My Inr has not been theraputic for weeks ) 1.6 - 1.7 ) even with gradually increasing the dose every day. I pushed back a little today about the machine because with my Inr being out of wack and the new diagnosis of Lupus , I just didn't want anything new to worry about right now. I also mentioned that I read somewhere that the machine will give a false higher reading because of some reaction with the strips they used. She flipped so I would like to know of anyone's experience with the machine . thanks Deb
