Hi. My mom is taking Coumadin. Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 10mg. Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at 7.5mg. Her INR is 1.58. Doctor said her INR should be between 2-2.5. She is not taking any food high in Vitamin K content. Help. Thank you.

If it's a dosing issue then they can adjust the Anti-coagulant you use to resolve this.

Diet (Vit K containing foods) can also adversely affect the INR. My problem was eating too much pulse and green veg which lowered my INR

So if you add up all those doses to 60 mg a week and divde that by 7 days, it works out very close to 8.5 mg a day average. IMO it looks like she needs her dosage increased, small increments perhaps to 9 mg per day (which incidently is my daily dose) , having a range of pills helps also, I have 1 mg, 3 mg and 5 mg pills. Also 7.5mg to 10 mgs and back down to 7.5 mg over a few days is a large variation, I never vary my dose under normal circumstances by any more than 1 mg per day. Basics for dosing are INR too low increase dose, INR too high reduce dose. Found this blog, found it helpful also-http://cjeastwd.blogspot.co.nz/2014/09/managing-my-inr.html
