We usually give Warfarin only for 3 months after a DVT unless it is a second DVT, she has a genetic abnormality of clotting, she has heart disease, she has abnormal platelets. We usually stop the warfarin and put the patients on something like Disprin or antiplatelet drugs after the 3 months. She can't really take drugs for arthritis with the Warfarin without risking abnormal bleeds. Maybe she needs to get a second opinion from a physician for both conditions.
