I am having a problem with keeping my INR at an acceptable (to me) level. My GP is satisfied with it being at 1.4, while my rheumy suggests between 3 and 3.5. My rheumy suggested that I begin low dose aspirin therapy along with my coumadin. Will this affect my INR in a measurable fashion? Are there benefits to low dose aspirin that I am unaware of? I would have asked her myself, but this suggestion came somewhere in a 2 hour new patient consultation, and I only ran across it in my notes when I got home.
