good day,

i have been on warfarin for the last 2 years due to pulmonary emboli as well as dvt in the left calve due to a broken ankle.

will i have to take it for the rest of my life (according to my mom''s dr) or will i be able to stop it now and take perhaps disprin cv for the rest of my life.

dvt is a problem in our family as well.

If you are at high risk to develop a DVT, you should consult an internal specialist to determine if you have to continue taking Warfarin. Taking Warfarin for a long period of time, has risks and side effects and it is therefore, essential to establish if you have to take this product or if you can replace it with aspirin.
