Ive been on the injections for 6 days and warfarin for 3 days and my first INR came back as 1.1. The Nurse said this was normal. As a second opinion is this ok?

I was told warfarin takes a few days to build up before raising your INR, thats why they put you on heparin shots to cover you until your INR is therapeutic ( between 2 & 3 )

hi, yes that sounds normal. Mine was about that as well the first week when I started
warfarin and heparin injections. It went up to 2.4 in about 7 days. I stayed too long on
the heparin injections thinking I still had to be on them when discharged for another
week from hospital and my INR went up to 6.2. Then I had to stop immediately the
heparin and go off warfarin for 2 days as well. The heparin and warfarin combined make
INR go up really quickly and yours will be going up quickly around now I would think.

Warfin doesn't become theraputic for about 2 weeks on average. Hence, the need for shots as Claire indicated. PT/INR should be 2-3. The doctor will alter your dosage to keep you in this range, usually a minimum of 6 months. It can and will fluctuate so they'll keep a close eye on it.

You've been on warfarin for 3 days and your INR is 1.1? That may be possible, but it doesn't sound normal. If you were not taking coumadin AT ALL, your INR would be between 0.9 and 1.1. You should see at least some increase in INR by 3 days after your first dose.

My INR was 1.1 after being on warfarin for 3 days. On the 5th day it was
1.2. It took me a couple of weeks before I hit therapeutic levels. It's
normal. My doctor kept checking my INR every few days and increasing my
warfarin dosage by 1mg each time until I was therapeutic. I was finally
stable on 10mg a day.

1 is the INR level that "normal" people have.

0.8 was my INR level when I was admitted to hospital.

Somewhere between 2 and 3 is therapeutic, and where I've been over the past couple months.

hi I was just put on warfarin less then a month ago and they started with 10mg and it jumped to 3.7 in less then 24 hours and they kept me in the hospital because they said it should have only gone up to 1.something..they said it usually takes someone 3-4 days to get where they want it then a month to get it normalized...today it was where it was supposed to be 2.5. I also have a hematologist monitoring my levels. I have a cranial venous sinus thrombosis.

Hi...new to this site....just been diagnosed with multiple bilateral PE. I am a bit confused though as I had a CTPA and it was clear and then I had a VQ Scan which was positive to PE. I am now on my 3rd day of Warfarin and Clexane and my INR has been 1.0 then 1.1 then back to 1.0....I am thinking of getting a second opinion as I am not sure which is correct - the CTPA or the VQ. Any suggestions?

My limited understanding is that the VQ scan is going to show the
"perfusion" rates throughout your lungs. The CTPA is going to show
more the physical points of clot/potential blockage. I am *guessing*
that the what this indicates is that you have a scattering of
physically small clots that don't show up easily in the CT but the
areas beyond which the blockages are, do show up in the VQ scan. I'd
ask a pulmonalgist.

Regardless, I'd treat it like you have had a PE. Your odds are much
better if you take it seriously.

best of luck

Hi! I was in a car accident in September. They had to take my spleen as it ruptured and do a laparotomy because of the bleeding and now I have a dvt in the vein that connected my spleen to my kidney. I was on heparin drip in the hospital for 4 days, sent home on lovenox injections twice a day for 20 days as well as Coumadin. I have since stopped the lovenox injections for about 2 weeks now and am still taking my Coumadin. My INR level have NEVER changed. Everytime I go it is 1.1. Im so confused and scared! Is this normal for my INR to have never budged??? We have played with the Coumadin and I have been taking 10mg for 3 days then the dr drops it back down to 5 mg each week. HELP!!!!
