Padbo, I've been on Coumadin (warfarin) for close to five years because I tend to atrial fibrillation.

The most critical thing is to have your prothrombin time titrated and checked semi-monthly or monthly, depending on what your doctor specifies.

I've had no problems with excessive bleeding on the medicine, but my cardiologist is adamant about keeping the pro-time between 2 and 3.
People are on Coumadin for years without any problems and I doubt your leg weakness is caused by it. (I would hope that you are on a strict schedule of blood work to be sure the dosage is correct from week to week). I am guessing you have developed another diagnoses with leg weakness. However, Altace can cause muscle weakness. You need to check with your doctor to sort it all out.
