I know this is normal but its starting to get frustrating. I had my blood work done again today (I have it done every Friday) and my INR went down from 2.5 to 1.5 in a week. I take 9mg of Coumadin at night. I have been on Coumadin since August 2, and was on Lovenox for ten days then as well. About 4 weeks ago they put me back on Lovenox because my INR kept going below thereputic levels. Anyway, I just had to write this in here because at home, nobody understands why I get anxious before I go to the doctor and upset after I find out its low. Its frustrating... does anyone feel that way. I know its normal for the numbers to fluctuate, but that doesn't mean that I don't feel upset about it, if you know what I mean... it would be one thing if it fluctuated in a THERAPUTIC range...why can't they aim for my levels to be HIGHER...like get my INR up to 3.5 and then take me off the Lovenox, instead of 2.5? I know, I am not a doctor...LoL. Anyway, just feeling frustrated. Thought someone here would understand more than my family and friends who think this medication is just "medication" and doesn't realize it is actually hard to manage. Hope someone can give me so hope and experience.

She is in excellent shape, really exercises a lot, and eats well... not at all overweight. Anyone else have any issues with this? I did find that it can go with PKD. She was reading that there are...
