More like won’t. Apparently it’s a liability issue, and since most PCPs/GPS have no idea about warfarin (yet resist being told they don’t need to do anything - that they can just give you the prescription - since one self-manages) they often refuse, referring you to the ‘Coumadin clinic’ or advising you to get it from your cardiologist. A double bind.so your GP can't?
Someone needs to make a ‘warfarin test’: if you can answer 30 questions about warfarin adjustments, interactions, missed doses, INR - you get to skip the runaround. : ) Right?
