    How much Warfarin Amount do you take?

    Don’t I just hate it when an anti-coagulant is referred to as “blood thinner”. It’s very confusing. Does the new doc mean anti-platelet or warfarin? Thanks Tom in Mo I agree totally with you.

    Lab vs Home Test

    Not sure, too long ago, but I thought the “S” and the “XS” both took the same strips. Based on my experience with the “S”, I’d be surprised if any were still in service. Not sure what to make of the newer model and I’d totally forgotten what “S” Looked like just remembering it was big, bulky...

    Lab vs Home Test

    No, I didn’t realize John Cameron Swayze was related to Patrick. Small world. Now I wonder if he can dance, too.

    that is very surprising because warfarin usually comes on 1, 5 and 10 mgs. tablets. Maybe you could ask druggist about what’s available In your area.

    I’m Canadian, bought my first Coaguchek S in 2004, replaced it with Coaguchek XS two years later and have self tested weekly since then. Those machines were bought outright. The S from a pharmacy, the XS bought directly from Roche when S broke down while under warranty. Doesn’t Roche sell...

    Clicking sound of mechanical valve

    That’s exactly how I remember it. I found the clicks very soothing at bed-time and could take my pulse while listening. Not everyone feels this way.

    Clicking sound of mechanical valve

    My St. Jude was audible when first received diminishing over time. I occasionally hear it now and the individual clicks are not so distinct (precise). All well though.

    How much Warfarin Amount do you take?

    Interesting! This is the first time I’ve learned 2.5 mg tablets existed. If you don’t mind being asked what is the brand name?

    St. Jude mechanical installed on January 29, 1999. It’s hard to believe where the time has gone.
