Can you tell us what you know about Vioxx and reported bleeding in patients that don't take Coumadin? My doctor absolutely does not want me taking this combination. I don't have any other conditions that would cause unnecessary bleeding say in the stomach lining....so can't understand why it was deemed as such a danger if only taken occasionally?
I also have a very low response when taking Tylenol. Therefore, required pain relief recently...took 4 EX Tylenol's and nothing! My MD called in Darvocet. One tablet did the trick. Darvocet is acetaminophen based so I have a hard time understanding this. Must be the narcotic response? Was big on Motrin and Advil for pain prior to my MVR. Would this raise the INR automatically or just increase the "potential" to bleed if the conditions where right?
All the best,
