Hi alpakinci, so an increase average of around 0.35 mg per day, perhaps enough to bring her into range? What's her most recent INR reading?
I'm still assuming her INR range is 2.5-3.5?
So for me a 0.5 mg increase/decrease will move it around 0.2-0.4 INR points, so it appears to me from the last INR you posted she needs to go up 0.7 INR points to be at INR 2.5.
I'm guessing perhaps the doctor prescribing is afraid of over shooting the mark, generally (with no other issues) significant bleeding risk isn't recognised as increasing until the INR goes above 4.0-5.0 depending on which paper you read, so a slight over shoot shouldn't normally be an issue, whereas as I said before the longer one stays below their target range the greater the risk of a clot increases. https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3868/14626794599_442e809525_o.jpg
