Hi Everyone - recently been prescribed Hirudoid Cream by GP for Superficial Thrombophlebitis. Has anyone used this cream in confunction with Warfarin and if so did it affect your INR.
Hirudoid information say it should not, but since using it I have had an elevated INR of 4.5 for several days running whereas I'm normally 3.5 to 3.8 (my agreed range is 3.0 to 4.0).
Diagnosed several years ago with APS after series of DVTs and I manage my Warfarin mysef and self test (coagucheck) with monthly check at the hospital. Have dropped Warfain from 8mg to 7mg for the last couple of days but INMR still at 4.5mg.
