Anyone on warfarin who is prepared to share their experience of INR testing? I usually am tested once evey 2-3 weeks and get the results by post on the Saturday (mu local Warf clinic being on a Fri morning; shame they can't make it Fri afternoon...! )
Two things about this; every now and then they leave me for longer, maybe 4-6 weeks only to find that my INR has plummetted (once down as low as 1.7). Have phoned them to say plesae don't leave it this long as it sdeems to go down so much . We are on holiday next week and they arein a leaving me for longer mood- not due next test till 26 Aug, last one was mid July. Had bad migraine falshes the other daya and dull headache (not anything like as bad as they have ben in the psat) adn wondering if it's gone down. Anyone got any expriences or advice? HAve looked into coagucheck device but my warf clinic (operates out of Jimmy's in Leeds) say they woould still expect me to get tested at the Friday clinic as well (sheesh). how can you get them to check you more often and then let you use of self-monitoring device?
