Has anyone had any issues related to taking Warfarin in regards to the medication strength not being what is should? A family member has been having issues with it & so am I now. The strength that the pills say they are, seem much lower. Is there some place I can take a sample of their & mine (warfarin tablets) to have them checked? We are both having INR issues & we get our medication from different places. My family member was the first to think something is wrong since they are not able to maintain their INR level. Within the last two months, I am now having the same issue after being on this for 20 plus years with no problems. I was told that since this is a generic drug the measure is not as refined. But I have been on Warfarin for a very long time. I think the strength is compromised. I really want to get the pill tested. Where can I do that? Help please, as this has become a very serious issue for me now.View Thread
