I had a PE back in Jan 2009. Was on the heparin until the coumadin worked. Because of alot of risk factors that I have that can cause another clot, my specialist has ordered me to be on the coumadin for years. I have Type 2 Diabetes and I am a truck driver who sits for long periods of time. I have heard from others who had used this for years as well that the skin looks older faster if exposed to the sun (I mean doesn't the skin begin to age prematurely when exposed to the sun even without Coumadin?) As well, I have heard about hair loss. Or bleeding in the stomach if a person drinks too much alcohol, etc. What long term side effects can be expected from Coumadin?
