I agree with the other poster. If it was me I would want to be seen by a Dr. and not a NP, when you're dealing with clots and blood thinners.

I've been on Coumadin for almost 2 years now and I have to be very careful in what medicines I take, even OTC. It was my understanding that Premarin and Coumadin (Warfarin) were a big No No and not to be mixed together.

I have been on cumiden since 01 and in 05 I had an arrogant Dr take me off of it for two weeks for a simple cateract removal! I ask if that was safe, he looked at me in disgust and said when did you become a DR? After one week I had a massive stroke and almost died!! I am trying to learn to keep my records and look up as much as I can.
