Shari Stogdill (2 years ago):
My husband, brother in law, and another man I met just this last week all have one thing in common. They all three took or are taking Warfarin. All three have low red blood count, problem with water retention, fatigue, lack of oxigine and can not breath when walking short distances. My husband has had to have blood transfusions ever three months but they never give him enough to add up to correct amounts for his size and gender. What studies have been made to correct the loss of red blood cell count and formulation back into ones system once it has been, what appears to me and aulteration of correct blood cell making? We need to know this treatment, like asap. Our doctors have not come up with a reason for the loss of these mens blood. It strikes me funny that all three of these men have this problem in common and all three took this blood thinner. Lodgic tells me there has to be a connection. My husbands blood doctor has hit a blink wall. We have done the Vit k. Iron injections, B12, all the tests of gi, stomach, UA, and BM. No blood loss found for these areas. Now the Doctors are grasping at straws and want to see if chemo-therepy would not help. All I can see that doing is putting toxic drugs into my husbands body that mostlikely will cause him more problems to deal with. This has us both quite upset that he is being used as a gennie pig, because the doctors have not been told the dangers of taking Warfarin. Please advise us what to do so we can help our doctor help treat my husband correctly and safely.

- 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 combination of coumadin and magnesium citrate guarantees too low INR

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.

From this study (12 hours ago):
My mother has moderate to severe A - Fib and suffered a TIA two years ago, at which point she began a regimen of Coumadin. She was on no other drugs at the time other than maybe Thyroid med.
After many month on Warfarin, she switched to another blood thinner, Eliquis, which made her feel very depressed. She resumed the Warfarin and developed very annoying double vision, which appears to be correctable with prismatic lenses in her glasses. She is 91 and I asked her if the double vision was corrected if she covered one eye; she seemed to concur, so I infer she has monocular diplopia. Currently she is only taking a baby aspirin daily.
Questions: How likely is it that the Warfarin/Coumadin caused the diplopia?
Is this side effect permanent?
