 5  Blood Clot Pulmonary Embolism From what I can tell I am not suffering any side effects. But switched from Xarelto. And Xarelto has many horrible side effects. I gained 25 pounds in 3 months on Xarelto and was having many bad side effects. So far Coumadin has been amazing. And i'm losing the weight I gained. I think it was all water retention. I feel so much better on Coumadin. M 49 10 days

 3  Factor v Leiden With 6 total DVT's my check valve in my arteries are shot it is very hard to circulate blood makes walking difficult standing impossible. But it's ruining my tendons like my Achilles' tendon I can barely walk. I don't take blood so other alternative will not work. Is a serious injury you would need blood I stand by Acts 15:20 with Coumadin a shot of vitamin k can reverse the bleeding that's why we stay off a dark leafy green meal. M 59 6 years

 2  Protein S and C deficiency Hairloss, extremely tired, dizzy, blood pressure has been dropping for years knowing average is 90/54. I am so cold. My hands and feet never get warm. I used to be so active now can barely get out of bed! I have to take high dosage 10 mg a day. I've had to have 12 inches of my large intestine removed from bleeding from ulcerative colitis. Had to have stomach surgery last year. I don't know anyone else who has had to have this high lifetime dosage. My dr says it should in be causing symptoms but I have them!! Please email me if you have similar side effects. I hope to learn all I can to help my quality of life! F 57 7 days

 1  DVT and now 2 years later for PE Thinning hair, weak nails, depression, emotionally all over the place, 1-second stabbing sensations in stomach, nausea, numbness of left arm and left leg, extreme heat to extreme cold feeling, fatigue, terrible bruising, no energy, just plain sad all the time It didn't work when I took it 2 years ago for a DVT in left calf. Kept getting pain in my left leg back then while on warfarin and did Doppler which never showed anything, then after 6 months it was gone. Recently, my leg stopped hurting but I felt as though I was having a heart attack. Ended up having to go to emergency and had CT Scan that revealed it to be bilateral PE. Now being told to go on warfarin again(???) and for LIFE since I now have clots in my lungs...think I'm gonna go the natural route this time, don't want to get violent with these ill-informed doctors...don't trust the pharmaceutical industry AT ALL ANYMORE.

COUMADIN  (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)
