Coumadin Effects?

Coumadin Effects?

Just wondering if anyone has been on Coumadin and had experienced any side effects do to it? It seems coumadin is the only approved blood thinner for someone with a mechanical valve but I kind of wonder if it is causing some of the symptoms I had been experiencing ever since my last surgery. If you have any experiences with coumadin side effects, please let me know. Thanks! :)

I was given it about 3 days after I had surgery. I just had it once and was taken off and was given xarelto and been on Xarelto since. I have been given lovenox after other surgeries I had but after being discharged I was back on Xarelto.

I had frequent bleeding issues on Coumadin for 30 years. My Dr put me on Eliquis and have few nosebleeds but nothing serious. Much prefer the Eliquis
