My INR number has stabilized
My INR number for my Coumidan-level has stabilized. I'm taking 5 mg five times per week and 7.5 mg twice a week. Coumidan doesn't actually thin the blood. It reduces the coagulation factor (vitamin K) so the blood doesn't coagulate as much, hence reducing the liklihood of clots. I've been having weekly blood-draws to check the INR, but now that it has stabilized, my next blood draw is in two weeks, and hopfully monthly after that.
