I am experiencing difficulties with warfarin mainly because of the steroids. At the moment I am being weaned of Azathioprin I am down to 50mg and I am on 5 mg of steroids one day and 10 the next. I had a massive bleed one month after taking the warfarin( I wrote about it at the time) and yesterday had a follow up appointment with the doctor who looked after me in the hospital. He told me that I had been dangerously ill and if my IRN went as high as 4 again I was likely to
bleed again in the same way which could lead to an operation to remove part of my bowel.
I am considering alternative drugs to Warfarin but I am told that whilst they are more stable than Warfarin there is not an antidote to them and like there is to warfarin.Has anyone experienced the same as me and has anyone gone onto the other drugs with steroids I would like some advice please.
