I did learn that my INR drops faster than I expected.

This is what I find interesting, is that not everyone’s INR reacts the same to dose changes. I take 4 mg of warfarin daily, and when my number creeps up too high (such as 4.3- my range is 3.0-3.5), the Coumadin clinic tell me to skip a dose. However, I’ve found that skipping a dose makes it fall too quickly too fast. I have started taking half a dose (2 mg) for just one night when it gets too high, and it will drop back to 3.0-3.2 within three days. I can’t imagine skipping a whole dose for several days.
