Paranoia caused by Warfarin
have been on Coumadin for about 12 weeks. Sometimes I experience extremely high levels of anxiety, sometimes when driving, but even worse anxiety as a passenger. I know that there is no reason to feel that way, as I am in the hands of excellent drivers, but this kind of irrational fear overwhelms me and it's very difficult to calm down...
Anna  |  February 3, 2015
I have been taking it for a month now and I seem to "hear things", kind of silly though, like Im being haunted lol Sorry, im not making fun, just that its a relief to know Im not losing it, just another side effect. Hope you get well soon :)
Sylvia  |  November 9, 2014
The exact same thing has happened to an elderly relative of mine, she had all her marbles until they started poisoning her with this nasty medicine a few months ago. and she still had mini strokes, even with the warfarin, so the doc has said she can come off it. Im hoping her paranoia will go away quickly. Hope yours does too :)

I started using soy milk to help with the hot flashes, it seemed to help, but then my upper lip started to turn dark-stopped using the soy, and it went away. Hot flashes still occur but not as often.

Prednisone 40mg 5-day dosage gave immediate relief from my anxiety at nighttime and libido went up.
So weird! Got Prednisone for some allergic dermatitis and they told me not to take it near bed time because it makes you wired. Not the case with me! I still take it in the morning but by night time I actually am tired and sleep without needing to take my anxiety medicine. I've been on Xanax for over a year to help me sleep at night. Its great! I hope for the short time I am on it it will just get me into a better sleep pattern!

Xarelto and Eczema
I was on Xarelto for a few months after getting a DVT post knee surgery (I'm a 31 y/o male), and now (after being off of Xarelto for a few weeks), have developed severe eczema on my hands. I have never had a skin issue in my lifetime.
Adam S.  |  January 1, 2015
Had been on Coumadin for several years for recurrent DVTs and had periods of rashes and itching. In April I had more leg clots while on Coumadin, so doctor switched me to Zarelto. Clots are gone, rashes are gone, but skin itches more, just about everywhere: scalp, back, face, arms. Leg itching I think is due to previous dvts causing varicose veins and pooling.

Coumadin does not thin your blood. It works by making you blood take longed to clot blood work should be done on a rec uhh last basis to monitor.clotting time leafy green vegetables can decrease your clotting time. It is the vitamin k in these vegetables that have an effect on clotting time

I have been on Warfarin for about a month and a half now. I have noticed several side effects since taking it, to include; feeling hot or feverish, flu like symptoms, dry itchy skin, lack of appetite, nausea, hard to wake up in the morning, lack of motivation, to name a few of the more prevalent ones. Of course I have had the bruising and nose bleeds that come out of no where. I live an active life and work an active job, so most of the bruises are explainable. The nose bleeds come out of nowhe

Of couse warfarin thins the blood that's why we have regular inr and change dose accordingly , I've been on it now for 6yr for recurrent multiple p.e a couple of them whilst on warfarin as dose was,nt right and blood too thick. Also you can take hrt whilst on warfarin but only a small amount so will depend on how bad ur symptoms are if it will work for you.

Warfarin does not thin the blood. Calling warfarin a blood thinner is a misnomer, even though many m.d.'s do it.

yes definitely. Since I have been on warfarin after my heart attack when I was 43, I am 45 now, I am cold all the time. My hands and feet and nose mostly are always like ice to the touch. But I also feel the temperatures more extremely now and wear sweaters and use blankets when others don't need to.

High doses of prednisone have had the 'speed' effect on me. I felt great with lots of energy and happy but I couldn't shut up. It wasn't a problem for me, I liked it. My dose that day was probably 30 mg. Now I stay at 20 or under for inflammation of my bronchial tubes and don't take it if it isn't absolutely necessary. I'm also not good with 'weaning myself off' of it, as the doctor said to do but I have no side affects besides a bit of face swelling after a couple of days on it. Keep your dosa

I was orig put on hydrocortisone, my joints all went bad, I had confused brain and memory loss. Then they put me on prednisolone, god I was in a rage all the time. At the end of 3 weeks my brain felt like it was going to burst. I'm being told I need steroids to live. But since I've taken them I'm just egsisting. I have trouble walking, my feet are so painful and my brain is mush.

I was put prednisone for wheezing. I am 46. On day 4. My heart
Rate is going down to as low as 52. I have dry mouth and
I'm talking more than normal. I have anxiety normally
And I'm freaking out about my heart rate. I can't confirm that its the
Prednisone but my heart rate is typically fast.
I am afraid my heart is going to just stop.
Marnie46  |  March 29, 2014
Prednisone had a similar effect on me. I became a lot more violent and easily irritated. I found that normal things would set me off and make me rageful. My mood was almost bipolar. It does go away once off the med for about a week or so. The mental changes are not permanent at all, but they are definitely the result of Prednisone.
March 24, 2014
Yes, definitely. This has happened to me as well as my sister, especially when the steroid (prednisone) levels are high. Talking more like if your really have too much caffeine in your system, also constant urination (more at night) and lastly sudden changes in mood.

Prednisone and Suicidal
Sorry for your loss. I understand why Stanford had been reluctant to add a Psychiatrist to the team, as medical costs seem to be sky rocking. When will it ever be enough? Prednisone effects are wide and varied and should not be ascertained just by a chart or list but by the individual. Sad or not..I feel this diagnosis can only be done by the patient themselves. Prednisone is not a dangerous drug in itself. However, I realize my logic is like saying a Gun is not a danger in itself either. But h

I was on 80 mg a day at the peak and it made me quite angry and violent. I was never near suicide but it definitely messed with my mind. However, I found that this effect ended about a week after I stopped taking it, and I did not have any serious withdrawal problems.
March 24, 2014
Yes, "speedy and talkative" is a common effect. The psychotic effects can kick in on higher doses. My husband was on 160 when he became psychotic the first time and 90 the second. What is important is that depression can occur while coming off, even tapering the correct way. Doctors know about that. What they need to also know is how to treat those who do show extreme lability. What you can do is make sure your doctors are aware.
Lighthouse  |  January 23, 2014
I'm so sorry to hear about your experience. I am wondering if my mom will get like that when she stops the prednisone. While on it, she is speedy and talkative and child-like acting. I'm wondering if it will be like a crash effect when it gets out of her system. Was your husband ever speedy and talkative on it?

Shortness of breath
Hi Burwell,
Your shortness of breath can be due to atrial fib. When my atrial fib gets bad, I barely have sufficient breath to carry on a conversation and standing upright is a challenge. However, when my atrial fib is under control, I do get shortness of breath if my Warfarin level is above 3.4-ish. I get myself in for a blood test asap when that happens. I do best if I keep my INR between 2.8 and 3.2. If I get down around 2.5 my left foot begins to really ache in a way that I associate with t

It felt like gout but moved from one foot to the other or into one toe or under the foot. Very strange indeed for gout. After a second Holter test, no sign of atrial fibrilation as had been diagnosed in first test. Doctor took him off warfarin as soon as results showed no a.f. A miracle!!

I've been on Warfarin for arrythimia and Allopurinol for gout for several years with no problem. Originally, my doc also had me on oc "flushing niacin" which would open my veins & arteries. Turns out the niacin caused severe gout flareups, so I quit that. My standing therapy for gout attacks is concentrated cherry juice. For me it works. Drink 1 qt. at first hint of attack and continue drinking lots of it until attack goes away. If digestive problems occur, I cut back on the amount of juice. I

trunkel obesity caused by prednisone
I am currently in Anatomy and Physiology II at Northwest Florida State College and it sounds like you might have Cushing's Disease. General signs and symptoms of this includes fat redistribution (Truncal Obesity) and weight gain. However, it is treatable because all it is, is an overproduction of the hormone Cortisol. With that being said, just tell your family physician that you need a lab for your Cortisol/Corticosterone levels. Hope this helps!!
