I found this very stressful - but by 6 pm it was time to take my warfarin. I decided to do what I was told to do last time my INR was 1.8. That was - take 8 mg yesterday and 6 mg for the next 3 days. I did that and felt moderately stressed. Nobody ever called.
This morning I called to leave a message with my doctor about what I had done. The receptionist said that the staff went home without phoning me because he did not give them his directions until 5:30 because he had patients. I really think this is inexcusable. I had told my Xolair nurse about this the first time it happened and she said it just isn't done. Staff stay until everyone is phoned. I think it is unlikely that it is just my doctor's fault. I assume there is some sort of battle going on between the staff and the doctors at the clinic.
The receptionist said the amount of warfarin he had prescribed was 6.5 for the next 4 days. I am sure the amount I took was OK but I never got confirmation. I wonder what I should do about this. I am surely not the only patient this is happening to.
