    At 24 I had a PE brought on by birth control. Been on Warfarin for 9 months and I haven't had many problems.

    Been on Warfarin for 6m for PE found before emergency c-section. I concur with other responders-experiencing hair loss, less energy, mood changes/anxiety, however seems to be working. Has not affected my diet greatly, still eat salads etc., and even have occasional wine/beer without neg. effects on INR. Have Dr. appt. in 3 days for followup CAT scan and hopefully get the OK to discontinue use! ... Show Full Comment

    I began taking Warafin about 4 weeks ago after finding blood clots in my lungs. I am experiencing hair loss. Has this happened to anyone else? They are not sure if it's coming from the warafin or not.
