INR monitoring (Follow-up meeting)
Taking warfarin (Coumadin), a blood thinning medication, requires very close monitoring and special education. Your pharmacist will give you the information necessary to properly use this medication and the lifestyle habits to apply on a daily basis. Then, after obtaining the therapeutic targets from the doctor and based on your INR result, the pharmacist can adjust your Warfarin (Coumadin) treatment dose in order to remain within the safe targets. They will also establish the date for your next blood test in order to obtain the INR result.
You must already have received a prescription for this condition within the past 2 years. If the prescription comes from another pharmacy, make sure you have proof of your prescription (ex.: the prescription label).
