    Nope sorry, not my experience. If you have lost more than half a stone in 4 weeks go to your GP

    Hi Linda,

    ?I've been on Warfarin now over 7 years - probably a slight loss of appetite but no loss of weight. Well actually, I did, momentarily, loose some weight but then I'd had partial knee replacement surgery and was still full of toxins from anesthetic, I also lost about 5 kgs on account of the fact that I wasn't eating. However, once recovery was over and I'd returned to work my weight came back to its normal level and has been constant ever since.

    ?Out of curiosity - do you have problems with your INR levels, i.e. keeping in your target range or achieving your target INR.

    John
