Call 911: If you suspect a heart attack, the first thing you should do is call 911.However, in regards to your Coumadin (warfarin) use, you should still also take an Aspirin 325 mg.Although both are blood thinners, they work differently and Aspirin is the only one of the 2 found to decrease mortality with heart attacks.If you have angina, nitroglycerine is also good to have as needed at home. See your cardiologist.
