Smile Increased bruises from taking Warfarin

Hi everyone

I have been on Warfarin for 4 1/2 years now. Lately the bruises associated with blood-thinners have increased many times over. Anyone experienced this and know what it was attributed to ?

All advice welcome

Re: Increased bruises from taking Warfarin

When I get bleeding, or bruising, under the skin of my forearms it tells me that the Warfarin is working too well. It can happen after an increase in my Warfarin, or after a change in my diet.
