Since starting warfarin in 2009 I have put on a nasty 45 pounds. I have been working out 3/6 days a week and sometimes twice a day. I have gained some strength but lost no weight. I previously have never had a weight problem I'm 5'6 and have always been between 95 and a more healthier 130. Since warfarin I went from 125 to 175/180 with no ability to lose weight. Is it the warfarin? Is so does LMWH have the same side affect. I can handle just about anything but this weight gain. I had a tia yesterday and my dogs were all around me so my dr took a picture to show what they do when I have an episode dogs r cute but I look like a beached whale! I am what I call a Non-practicing anerexic but don't know how much longer he can remain non-practicing(I have two daughters and I couldn't take a chance of them picking up n it so I fight myself mentally to stay straight for them. But it's making me feel so horrible about myself I know I would feel better and function better if I could lose 40lbs. But even working out both with weight resistance and some form of aerobic. But lose nothing. Is it just me? If I stop eating my INR will put me back in the hospital an I can't get my ins to get me a INR machine so I can test as needed!!! Any advise plz!! ☹️😥
