Hi Everyone... First I thank God that I have found all of you. You are all wonderful people and always answer my questions when I am feelng nervous. Now for my new question.. In the last 3 weeks my inr has fallen from 2.1 to a 1.4. I do not eat salads or green vegetables since I was tol vitamin K is dangerous. So I am at a loss as to why this is happening to me. My doctor also has no idea. I am now taking 7.5 mg of coumadin 4 times a week and the rest I take 8mg. I am sure the small amounts of herbs in my food wouldn't make it drop. I drink chai tea every day. But I do not think that would drop it so much since the meds are measured according t one's diet. Help. I am at a loss. Any suggestions? Also did anyone out there ever have to give themselves heprin injections??? I hope it doesn't come down to this......GRRRR....Thanks for listening ... JUde
