Dear lady pta,
Your doctor will have to prescribe you something to manage your blood pressure. He may also need to do an ECG to see why you feel like your heart is missing beats. Ask him to prescribe something for the depression, see that you get a bit of exercise each day.
Warfarin is sometimes difficult to stabilize and you are doing the right thing to watch your diet. More you can't really do!
