1 doctor agrees

In brief: Antiphospholipid syn

I assume you're referring to antiphospholipid syndrome and taking something (warfarin?) that requires you to monitor your inr (international normalized ratio).
Check out question #12 at http://www.Lupus.Org/webmodules/webarticlesnet/templates/new_about.Aspx?Articleid=3939&zoneid=2. Then go ask your doctor for his/her opinion. Drink coffee if you like it but cut down if you notice palpitations etc.
