Hi all. I had pneumonia earlier this year and was in hospital 1 week. Got loads of intravenous antibiotics and was fixed. However since then I'm on warfarin for af and mr. My chest infection has returned but not pneumonia. I was given amoxycilin for 1week but my INR went to 5.0 Still got infection 6 weeks later now doc has given me doxycycline. It causes bleeding if taking warfarin even more than amoxycilin!! Does anyone know of an antibiotic least likely to interact with warfarin? I'm too scared to take the new one. I get nose bleeds anyway without extra worry.
