Darrell Robert Schmidt on Apr, 3, 2012:
I began Coumadin Feb 16, 2012. After about a month of in home Coumadin treatment I switched to a Coumadin Club where I went for blood tests. My doctor increased my Coumadin to 7.5 mg/d and, after a week my blood showed 4.9 when the desired level was 2-3. I was told to stop taking Coumadin for 2 days and retest. I had severe neck pain when I stopped taking Coumadin which completely went away after 1 1/2 days off Coumadin.
The dose was then set to 6 mg/d and the neck pain came back. After 2 days I, myself, reduced the dose to 5.0 mg/d. The pain reduced but was still there at a moderate level.
I am a 78 year old male recovering from a hip replacement 2-14-12, when several blood clots were found, requiring the Coumadin.
