User Comments about Coumadin
09 Sep 2010 My doctor prescribed this medication because I suffer from heart arrhythmia to prevent a stroke.

09 Sep 2010 The medication is well tolerated. I need to take every night to avoid blood clots. I need to avoid other medicines with coumadin. I cannot take aspirin, motrin, advil because of risk of bleeding. I take it everyday at bedtime.
