 1  Several Small Blood Clots in Lungs Feeling weak, weird pain around my left armpit, chest pain when I press on my chest lightly I can feel the pain, randomly have episodes where my heart starts pounding hard or skip a beat, restless leg syndrome every now and then, joint pain, tired, lightheaded, dizzy, headaches, stomach pain, feeling off constantly This drug is a nightmare! I have to take this because of several small blood clots in my lungs. I had even worse side effects on Eliquis so I had to switch to Warfarin Sodium. Even on this drug, I feel terrible almost every day. I am constantly in pain and it has affected my life as I never feel like doing anything but sitting down because of the pain. The worst part is the random chest pains that come and go. Of course all my doctors have said it's not from the Warfarin, yet even before treatment of my clots, it didn't give me these issues. I have been on this drug for 5 months. 1 more month to go (hopefully). I can't wait to get off of this drug so I can have my life back. So glad I found this site so I know there are other people out there who have similar struggles with this medication. M 24 5 months

 5  Hx of DVT & PE When I was taken off Warfarin in 2008, I developed a life-threatening pulmonary embolism. I've been back on it ever since with no further events. Auto accident 09/01/2017: Totalled/rolled-over Ford Focus. Due to hitting my head on the door pillar and the shoulder harness tugging on my kidneys, I experienced a few days of internal bleeding from both my temple area and in my urine. Both bleedings resolved within several days to a week without any treatment. M 64 11 years

 4  arterial clots Weight gain, bloating, loss of memory, forgetting words, joint pain. I am thankful for this medicine, my experience was so horrific that I'd prefer the side effects any day.

 2  a blood clot left leg in ultrasound Shortness of breath, cold sweats, cold hand, cold feet, shooting pain in my arm when I get my blood drawn, dizziness, weakness, confusion, pain in arms & legs, feels as if my veins were moving or shifting in my arm pain on calves, at times aren't able to bend leg with out sever pain, short pain on lower side of chest, at times middle of my chest, can't sleep, heart speeds up at times, symthoms worsen in the afternoon after taking pills use to think it was the lovenox but I have been of the lovenox for 2 days.. Must be the warfarin. When I notified my doctor he said it was not from clot or medication. But I know IT IS from the waetfarin. Even thou my doctor said it was all in my mind and reclmmended i see a phyc. From what it seems like & everything ive been reading, i belive that they are train to say that.. No one notified me of symthoms, side effect or that warfarin was a rat poisen till i started researching Warfarin side effects... I want to make it through this one for my wife and 5 kids we have together. I just hope once I'm of this pill I will be with out perment damage.. And DO NOT try to get yourself excited (horney) this will make your heart beat irregular to where you feel as tho your suffocating, Horrible feeling that's followed by cold sweats, excessive sweating, body ache, clammy cold feet and hands that are worse. Try to eat LESS vitamin K. Cause it interfers with warfarin.. Ask farmacy before taking ANY other medications. Hope I'll be off warfarin soon Its a serious drug that must be monitored by blood tests INR my is 2.0 Dr said its okay between 2.0 and 3.0.. Also keep your vitamin K low.. M 35 6 days

WARFARIN SODIUM  (WARFARIN SODIUM):  This medication is used to treat blood clots (such as in deep vein thrombosis-DVT or pulmonary embolus-PE) and/or to prevent new clots from forming in your body. Preventing harmful blood clots helps to reduce the risk of a stroke or heart attack. Conditions that increase your risk of developing blood clots include a certain type of irregular heart rhythm (atrial fibrillation), heart valve replacement, recent heart attack, and certain surgeries (such as hip/knee replacement). Warfarin is commonly called a "blood thinner," but the more correct term is "anticoagulant." It helps to keep blood flowing smoothly in your body by decreasing the amount of certain substances (clotting proteins) in your blood.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
