Blood clotting levels on taking warfarin, have red eye, reduce or increase dosage?

Blood clotting levels  on taking warfarin, have red eye, reduce or increase dosage?

Too many cooks: The doc who monitors your warfarin needs to know about any bleeding & should be the only one to advise you on dosage. If red eye is just prominent blood vessels that doesnt sound like a bleed, just an irritation. If it's a patch of red that could be a subconjunctival hemorrhage and your doc will want to know and maybe recheck your inr. ...Read more

History of high cholesterol (like sibs). Eat light, little meat. Gp stopped Zetia (ezetimibe) and prescribed red yeast. Is that ok for active, sharp 95yo woman?

History of high cholesterol (like sibs). Eat light, little meat. Gp stopped Zetia (ezetimibe) and prescribed red yeast. Is that ok for active, sharp 95yo woman?

Imo, if you have hx of heart attack, stent or bypass, it's reasonable to stabilize plaque. If not, i wouldn't use it. (ie there's no indication for primary prevention in this age group). ...Read more

In any case, she's on a lot of medications that should be reviewed periodically - at that time the Dr can also approve the drink, but it sounds fine. Best! ...Read more
