Hello Mellanie,
Thank you so much for sharing the additional information along with alternative treatments. I appreciate it very much and know our readers do as well.

Mary,

Good article. Here are a couple of additional resources:

1) One of my favorite resources for those on Coumadin or warfarin is at http://www.ptinr.com (here's a review I did on it a while ago: http://www.stopafib.org/newsitem.cfm/NEWSID/38 )

2) For those who don't want to deal with all the negatives and side-effects of warfarin, there is a newly-approved alternative called Pradaxa (dabigatran) - see https://www.empowher.com/atrial-fibrillation/content/pradaxa-dabigatran-approved-alternative-warfarin-reducing-atrial-fibrill
