REstless leg sydrome and cramping and coumadin use
  
I take 15 mg warfarin  2 days a week and 12.5 mg the other 5.  I am post op  mechanical AVR 3 yrs. Only other meds are prilosec, metoprolol 25mg tid, ativan prn for sleep. I am very active. and exercise regularly. Regardless of activity level I am plagued by leg jerking and spasm at night. All new symptoms post op. I have not found any correlation between the two, but I somehow feel they are related. I tried one rls med , Requip and had some pretty negative results. stopped the leg movement but gave me terrible dreams and wakefulness. Anu thoughts   thanks

Coumadin
  
I had a stroke on July 3rd.  Here it goes I was given a prescription of kolonpin and walmart decided to filled it with coumadin. I didn't notice it was coumadin because I filled this 28 day pilled box up and set the bottle down, I was already taken plavex 75 and a full strength aspirin and lipitor and multivitamin and fish oil. When I started taken the kolonpin which was actually coumadin I would start have stroke like systems again so I would be rushed to the er over and over runnning up $17000 in bills. Once I realize it was coumadin I was taken and not klonopin I have not and an episode I would like your opinion on this and why the coumadin cause me to have the stroke like symptoms over and over again. Once I stop taken the coumadin all problems went away. Please try to explain this to me. One other thing that the pharmacist should picked up on id that you only take coumadin once a day I was told. He was told it was klonopin because I asked the price of the drug because he filled it and he called me up to desk and told they didn't have 60 kolonpin and that I could come back at a later date to get the rest of them. He decidied to fill it with coumadin. If he had a question about the prescription he should have called the doctor to make sure what the prescription was, which he didn't.

blood clot in leg and blood doesn't get any thinner
  
I had a blood clot when I was carrying my 3 yr. old son. Now I have another one.  I have been through one set of lovanox shots and then coumadin. Now last wk. my blood went from 1.4 to 1.2 . and I had it taken again today and it is thicker again. Now they are going to put me back on shots and increased my coumadin to 20mg. They told me I could die from a stroke or a heart attack and to quit beauty school and to go home and just set with my leg up. I am so scared I don't know what to do. I am wondering if a vascular Dr. would do me more good as I am dealing with my primary dr. Please let me know what you think.   TY .  Nicole

Up and down inrs
  
hello.  I had a PE over two yrs ago.  No signs or symptoms until it was too late. I have been on coumadin since then.  They don't seem to be able to regulate my levels and this past week was off the chart inr.  I guess I need to know whether I should go to a specialist for this as I have been going to my primary dr since the hospital.  I get tested every since weeks now....should I be seeing a specialist as everyone keeps saying 
Thank u for taking your time to read this....

How often INR testing
  
I have been taking Coumadin for a while because I have protein C and S deficiency and have also had a couple of DVT's and PE, and now have an IVC filter.  Do I only need INR testing once/month when it is within the target range?  If it gets out of the target range and they increase my dose, how often do I need testing until it gets to the target range?

Drug interactions
  
Hi,I have developed a rash. Not sure what it is from. At first I thought they may be some kind of bite,but I sprayed my whole bedroom and got mattress protector,and still getting it. It started a couple monthes ago, They look different. Mostly on my arms and legs,but also got some on my neck. I was in treatment for colon cancer last September, Dr. put a port in me and I have been taking coumadin. I was in chemotherapy for 6 months until March, but only started seeing this about a couple months ago. I have read alot on coumadin and it's interactions. I wonder if this is some kind of rash or breakout, I have not changed any of my detergents or soaps, and have not eaten anything different. I also take a fiber pill and stool softener, and Vitamin D pill. I would appreciate any help that you can give me.Thank you for your time.
