Recently, I had to take Marevan for a couple of weeks because Coumadin was unavailable in Petropolis and Rio de Janeiro's drugstores. I thought maybe if I took Marevan in the same dosage of Coumadin, I would minimize the risks of new clotting. I could never be more wrong. My INR that was 3.84 (target range for me, according to the doctors) has dropped to 1.12 in two weeks.
When I told my doctors, they said to me that in Marevan the dosage is not as it seems... The pill is not really of 5mg but 2mg or 2.5... I am quite cross about it. I feel like I have been fooled by the pharmaceuthic industry, for we buy their product because we must take the drug.
Have you got any thoughts on that?
