Comment:
I have had a aortic valve replaced in 1991, i have been on coumadin since. I had the mitral valve replaced 2011 and both valves are mechanical. I have to take coumadin to prevent blood clots from forming. I can only take coumadin, wharfarin does'nt work for my body. My charts show it and my list of medicines have it so i get coumadin instead of wharfarin to keep my INR within the limits.

I am relieved that there is a medicine that can control my own blood's emphasized clotting activity. It killed my father and grand father and left my aunt severely disabled after a stroke.

It made my joints & muscles achy and changed my personality. My husband said I was snapping at him and that isn't my nature at all. My gums bled terribly & my taste buds were way off. Nothing I ate tasted right. M ... Show Full Comment
