Is There Anyone Out There That Has Bad Side Effects From Taking Coumadin/warifin?

Is There Anyone Out There That Has Bad Side Effects From Taking Coumadin/warifin?

I find I am always tired and have tummy problems. Also low energy. My meds have been switched around several times, the only thing that has been constant is the warifin. When I back off of it against my doctors wishes I find i eel better.

I don't hear about Warfarin any more -- it's considered outdated. Also Coumadin. All my friends & family (3 sisters & myself) take Eliquis. No reactions or dietary restrictions. It worries me terribly that I'm reading here that people are discontinuing without Dr.'s knowledge. That is a VERY dangerous thing to do. You're setting yourselves up for blood clots traveling to the brain or heart or lungs.

Well,I take 8 different meds for heart issues, and I can't say definitely if the problem was coumadin. But I did/do feel tired, fatigued, low spirits, and disinclination to leave my bed. Two years ago, changed from coumadin to the new drug that let's me eat all the greens that I want. I was still tired. Recently, however, I began to take high quality Magnesium, B+Activ, and B12 vitamins. Feel amazingly better. First time in years.

One med that I cannot and will not take is the anti-cholesterol meds. They make me feel horrible; my joints ache and I can barely move. Moreover, there is a lot of literature out there that makes a strong case AGAINST big pharma that is making a killing off the cholestrol meds.

Do others experience problems with anti-cholesterol meds?

I won’t take statins, too many people have awful side effects with them and I have enough with the heart medications I need to take. At the end of the day we need to have quality of life, no one lives for ever, and need to enjoy every day.

I have had bowel problems since being put on anti coagulants. Was on Dabigatran first, had to come off as needed to be close to loo all the time. Changed to Warfarin ibit I am just as bad on them. See cardiologist in September and ask if I can take something else. Fed up with the side effects.
