Yes but......: The idea is to reduce your risk of stroke. You should take some time to discuss stroke prevention with your neurologist the next visit. Set aside at least 20 minutes to get a better idea of the risks and benefits of taking Coumadin (warfarin) with your bleeding /clotting diathesis. Make sure when you confirm your appointment with the stroke specialist you let his staff know you will have lots of questions
