 1  pulmonary embolism extreme tiredness; stomach bloat/discomfort; dizziness; red spots on body/face; peeling fingernails; major hair loss; dark areas on lower legs; bleeding gums frequently; aching joints/muscles; small red blood vessels showing on cheeks; frequent nausea; osteoporosis; bruising; to name some symptoms. This is a horrible and potentially deadly drug. I intend to look into natural alternatives to this 'drug' with so many horrible side effects. There has to be a better way to live than this!

 1  PE Headaches face breaking out up and down INR. I am talking with doctors due to my PE being associated with hysterectomy I am negative for all tests. My daughters are all testing positive so we are trying g to figure out what to do. My conclusion is coming off the rat poison and gettin on with a normal life again. I worry more about the effects of Coumadin than the PE I had symptoms of DVT that my doctor ignores that is why I ended up with it. I know te symptoms and I have Lovenox on hand. Quality I'd life at his point for me is my objective. F 41 2 months

 1  Blood clots after c-section Major weight gain! Depression and tiredness, weak immune system.. I have hated being on this drug. Talk about trouble loosing the baby weight! My doctor insists that Coumadin has nothing to do with my wieght gain- absolutely NOT true. I went on this medicine a week after giving birth and can't loose any weight. I eat right and exercise. Does not matter because my dosage is so high it does not impact anything I do. I am on 15 MG a day. I went to the beach and forgot to take my medicine for four days and lost 5 pounds. Prepare to gain a lot of weight on this medicine. I have two months left and I am counting down the days till I get off! F 33 4 months

 1  Atrial Fabrilation Weight gain, lightheaded I am healed so i am off from coumadin 3 days ago. I wanted to share these. I change my diet, like Bill clinton did. Went unto vegetarian. Most of all, i pray and believe for God healing. I was healed without the medication. You could check with your doctor how changing your diet could reverse your sickness. Do not change your diet without first consult with your doctor. My doctor was impress that my body headed itself. F 7 weeks

 1  Aortic Valve Replacement Tiredness, dizzyness, foggyness, mood swings, hair loss, nausea, vertigo, headaches, menstrual hemoraging, diahorrea, weight gain Horrible drug. I do wish I had been given all the options at the time of my surgery, as knowing what I know now I would have demanded a bovine valve. Even though most days I am glad to still be here, considering I also had to have an emergency aortic aneurysm repair, most days are so bad that I wish I wasnt. At least I get to see my kids grow up which is a blessing and the only thing that gets me through the worst days. Any suggestions on alternative therapies would be appreciated. F 41

 1  Factor V Leiden, DVT in right calf Horrible pain in hips and some pain in knees. With the first DVT, my doctor prescribed generic warfarin and I practically couldn't walk. Changing to Coumedin resolved the problem and I was off the drug in maybe 4 months. I did lose a lot of hair from my head at the time. Ten years later I had a second DVT (same right calf) and was told I'd be on Coumedin the rest of my life. After a couple months on Coumedin I have hip pain that comes and goes. After a couple years it has become increasingly hard to walk. I've tried acupuncture and chiropractic; nothing helps. This is a horrible drug. Canada and Europe have an alternative blood thinner which does not have these side effects. Why the FDA will not allow that drug in this country I do not understand. F 63

 1  Right Carotid Artery Dissection Extreme fatigue, weakness, occasional light-headedness, incredible LONG and HEAVY menstrual cycles... :( I noticed differences between generic warfarin vs. brand Coumadin, and my INRs. My cardiologist ordered for me to have only the Coumadin brand, as he said the generics had variable ingredients with varying efficacies, as they are imported from countries outside the USA that do not have the same quality control as we do here. My INRs went as high as 6.5 while on the warfarin that was made in China. I have my own INR home test machine, so I did notice this. Just an FYI !! F 45 4 months

 1  Mechanical Aortic valve replacement Stomach sickness, moodiness, sore and aching, sensitive to pressure, always cold, often spaced, occationally bloated, overall an unhealthy feeling. I cannot imagine doing this for the rest of my life. This drug is totally ruining my relationships and my usefulness at work. I felt better when I was at risk for death (seriously). Where are all the other drugs for this that are being used in Europe and Canada?! I am miserable!!!!!! M 34 2 months
