I had one doctor who had my INR target 2.0-2.5 and I always felt worried because if it went over a tad she changed my meds. Now with new doc I have a target of 3.5 when I told her I'd rather stay in that range. This week it went to 4.2 and she took me off warfarin for two days and will see her again in 3 weeks. I know when it's high 3's I feel better but now with 4.2 I have some a couple of large black and blue marks. I definitely bruise easier on warfarin. Does anyone else experience this. I was playing with my grandchildren last week and probably got a couple of bumps but don't know.
I live in New York City and we don't self test.
I love this forum. It's helped me so much.
