Coumadin a necessity for blood disorders!

My name is LeRoy and I have a boatload of blood disorders. Antiphospholipid Syndrome, Protein S Deficiency and Lupus. I take the brand name-Coumadin blood thinner, because Coumadin is made by just ONE company-Bristol Meyers. Therefore they are able to control the quality of their product. Whereas with Warfarin, there are about 12 different manufacturers of Warfarin. There is no way the quality can be controlled and I am convinced that many of the AntiCoAgulation problems that folks on Warfarin experience is because the quality varies from manufacturer to manufacturer with Warfarin. I know that it costs much less than the brand name Coumadin. But, think about how much better off you would be on Coumadin. Especially those who have a blood disorder, (i.e. APS, factor V, and others) the INR value would be more consistent. I'm so glad that my doctor saw past the price and choose Coumadin for me to use. Good luck, all!
