Natasha (3 years ago):

I am currently on 7.5mg coumadin, female, age 31. I had a stroke 1 mo before my 30th birthday. They know it was from a clot but they have no clue where the clot originated from. Here the last 4-5 months when I have my period, I am blind for about 10-15 minutes on my first day. Is this something I should be concerned about. I only take coumadin, so the only difference is my period starting.

  • Sodium phosphate sensitivity - chlortrimaton helps
    When I eat meat or any product with Sodium Phosphate in it, either in one large dose or cumulatively I get all of these symptoms. It gets worse if I eat it in consecutive meals and/or days. Taking Chlortrimaton eases the symptoms. The Doctor says this is not an allergy but is a sensitivity to Sodium Phosphate. There are other meat tenderizers and preservatives that have one or more of the symptoms listed but I have not been able to identify them.
  • The effect of magnesium citrate on coumadin
    the combination of coumadin and magnesium citrate guarantees too low INR

    have had two knee surgeries ,a lumbar decompression, after this three surgeries start taken Losartan potassium and two months later have had a lumbar fusion after this I suffered a Deep Vein Thrombosis, continues taken Losartan for more of year and half, I notice is a bad combination when my older physician increase high dose of Warfarin I was losing mi Vision and stopped Losartan by my self and my vision is great now. my new physician told me that is OK that I had stopped taken Losartan. and I strongly believe that this cause me the DVT.
  • Tykosin and spontaneous erections
    After 15 minutes of taking Tikosyn 250 size I get spontaneous erections that remain in duration for extended periods of one hour or more. These happen several times during a 12 hour dose cycle.
  • Valtrex and warfarin
    Valtrex was prescribed to be taken every 8 hours. After 4 doses I became extremely cold while outside temperature is 80 degrees and also quite dizzy. I also take 5 mg. of warfarin daily. Although the herpes condition is not fully cleared, I plan to stop Valtrex. I believe the mix has caused my INR to rise too high. ny comments ? Its Sunday. No need to say more.
