What are three important things to remember about Coumadin and
1. Coumadin is a very important drug for you. Follow the prescription exactly, and keep your follow-up appointments for blood tests such as the INR/PT.
I have to do this tomorrow. Blood test for INR/PT.
2. Coumadin interacts with vitamin K in your body, so you need to keep vitamin K intake constant from day to day. It is also important to avoid herbal products and dietary supplements that may affect vitamin K and Coumadin unless approved by a qualified health care provider.
Oh yeah. I just can’t take any medicine.
3. Post the phone numbers of your doctor, pharmacist, and registered dietitian for ready reference when you have a question or concern about Coumadin, vitamin K, and your INR / PT.
LOL I don’t have their numbers.. XD
I’ve been taking Coumadin since last March and I’ve been wearing compression stockings since then, too. It’s not easy and I’m going to be like this for a long time… long long time.
