Does coumadin cause body temp to drop or feel cool?
Damn thing didn't let me finish...sorry about typos also. I had the gene mutation which causes blood clots. But since taking coumadin I have stopped all other medication...I no longer need nurofen for migraines as I don't get migraines or tension headaches because the blood flows freely through my system. I also don't take pain medication because my body is flowing and I don't get back pain because I am not stuck at home in bed with migraines which means I can go out in the sunlight and not get

I am 31yo and still on Coumadin and I always wonder how I evet survived playing in the snow in shorts or minus 40 degrees playing in the snow in a jacket I wore outside when it was over 15 degrees. But it's the Coumadin...I can't go outside at night because I don't want to have another shower to get me warm again...I joke and say I have hyperthermia, I just get too cold. I've had cold hands and feet all my life but when I turned 26yo and went on warfarin for lupus anticoagulant promthrombin gen

I was really cold when I first started taking it but that has gone away been taking for about a month and a half.

Yes, the thinned blood will feel cold and hot temperature changes.
J. Moore  |  July 5, 2014
it causes you not to be able to get warm sometimes
Kai  |  June 12, 2014
Yep... it thins the blood!... get a new doctor!
bailmail  |  April 10, 2014
Yes! I have been taking coumadin for almost 16 years now. I have noticed how much colder I am that other people who are not taking the medication while in the same conditions. It is a frustrating side effect of the medication in my opinion.

Judith, I am 69 and only got this irregular heartbeat after a prolonged chest infection and collaped lung last October which was not diagnosed early enough. Since then I have had a phlegmy cough after I have eaten, mostly in the evening, and shortness of breath and chest infections for several months. I find it difficult to get to sleep and don't go to bed until about 1 a.m. Taking about 10mg of Warfarin every evening, but having trouble getting my INR to 2.5 that they want it to be. Have be

Coumadin (warfarin) and the gout patient
I take warfarin and Allopurinol for gout. On my last flareup I used Celebrex and the pain dissipated in 48 hrs. FYI Allopurinol and Indomethacin are severely contra indicated for with Warfarin, whereas
Celebrex has a lesser level of contra indication. See Webmd.
Jake  |  July 2, 2014
I guess you never had gout pain like this. My quality of life has drop off the map. Even as I want to exercise I can't put any pressure on my foot. Before taken this crap I could walk blocks. Now just to move around the house I take 3 or more of Tylenol.
julian Liss  |  April 27, 2014
So far for me the gout pain has affected my quality of life to the point where I just want it to stop. One way or another. I went from walking to sitting all day cause of the pain.
Julian Liss  |  April 27, 2014
You'd rather have a stroke than the occasional pain of gout? The gout can be handled pretty easily ~ not so much the stroke!
