New to Warfarin?

Just a little helpful tip which nearly caught me out.

After coming out of Hospital I thought that Warfarin Sulphate was the same as any drug in terms of:-

Get your prescription
Go to the pharmacy
Collect your Warfarin tablets

Assumption is an evil – I nearly ran out of Warfarin when I found that the GP had not authorised the prescription.

Remember that you need to show your INR record card to the GP and the Pharmacist to prove that you have been attending regular clinics for checking your INR level. In the UK you must produce your INR record card,
and lets face it Warfarin was used as Rat poison and if you take too much you will cause yourself untold problems; mainly your blood will not clot.
