Does coumadin cause body temp to drop or feel cool?
Yep... it thins the blood!... get a new doctor!

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.

Coumadin (warfarin) and the gout patient
You'd rather have a stroke than the occasional pain of gout? The gout can be handled pretty easily ~ not so much the stroke!
