Warfarin? Cystitis/bladder Infections?

Jul 26, 2015

Has anyone else had problems with cystitis/bladder infections when on Warfarin?  This is a problem I have never ever experienced previously but for the last few days I seem to have had all the classic symptoms and am wondering if it could be Warfarin-related? I have been taking Warfarin for approx 7 months after a P/E and will be on it for life.  My INR is very unstable, (currently 3.4....should be 2.5).  A week ago I finished a one week course of antibiotics to try to clear up a chesty cough, (didn't).

Bladder (UTI) Infections. Upper UTI?

Has anyone had an upper UTI infection before? - I just got a UTI last night around 1am, burning while peeing, sluggish, etc, but later tonight I started feeling tenderness around my flank area underneath my rib cage, nothing painful, but I can feel it. I'm not sure if that's just natural gas or what. I've been drinking 100% pure cranberry juice for the past 2 hours with lots of water, so I'm wondering if that helps at all?

Alternative Blood Thinners To Warfarin

I am about to speak to my GP and Cardiologist about having one of the alternative blood thinners as because of an underlying problem with my bladder I am often on Prophylactic antibiotics and they do not interact well with the warfarin, making it difficult for them to get my INR correct. can any of you on any of the alternatives let me know how you are on them, any any side effects related to them, don't want to jump out of the frying pan into the fire!!!! the good thing for me would be I understand they do not interact with other medication, the 3 I have found that are available are Dabigatran, Rivaroxaban and Apixaban.

Atrial Fibrillation And Warfarin - Experiences?

I was diagnosed with Atrial Fibrillation about a year ago and have been treated with Bisoprolol and Aspirin. This seems to be working for me but have been advised by my doctor to go onto warfarin as I am at medium risk of a stroke. I don't want to change anything at the moment whilst the present medication seems to be working because I have heard some negative reports of warfarin - not only the side effects of hair loss etc. and giving up various foods but also the fact that you have to tell your doctor about practically any changes in what you eat and where you go (holidays etc). This seems very restrictive. Could I please have your experiences of taking Warfarin.

Warfarin - Neurotoxin And Can Cause Brain Damage?

I have just been on warfarin for 6 months for a left femoral dvt,during the prescribing phase no information was given to me,and I am shocked to find out myself after having an episode where my vision went very weird with associated vomiting for 5 hours that warfarin is a neurotoxin and can in some cause brain damage.wouldn't you think someone would give me that information at the start.prior to the above episode i had experience short burst periods of dizziness,and profound lack of clarity of thought. considering the seriousness of this drug wouldn't you think more information would be available to the taker of the drug other than the scant information on the drug information leaflets coming with the drug.I am profoundly angry as the lack of the more serious side effects to this drug not being given to me in order that i might make informed choices at the start.i have stopped the drug myself and informed my doctor of this.

Alcohol :: Cystitis Flare Ups

I suffered from uti's a lot when I was younger but since then I've been fine. 

Now suddenly these last few months as soon as I drink alcohol, I'm crippled with cystitis the day after. 

I only drink on occasion when I'm out which isn't much but I am only 25, so the thought of not drinking because I'll be in agony the day after is haunting me. 

I've tried the sachets and cranberry juice and they are not effective.

Anything else I can try to ease the pain? And is this a common problem? As it just started out of the blue for me. 

I take the pill and pantoprazole for my hiatus hernia, but I have been on these for years with no problems.

I also don't have any problems after sex usually, it's literally just started after I've drank alcohol.

Any advice would be great as I'm going a family party tonight for my boyfriend's birthday and dreading the thought of drinking.

Atrial Fibrillation - How Long? Bisoprolol And Warfarin

I had my first encounter with AF in September of 2013. I was put on Bisoprolol and Warfarin until I had a cardioversion in february the following year.

All has been well, until a few nights ago when I woke the morning after and found that I had gone back into AF.

I have been on a low dose of Bisoprolol (1.25mg) since the procedure. I also cut my alcohol intake to 2-3 drinks per week and kept exercising as I have always done.

I took myself to the local A&E department and was wired up which confirmed what I already knew. They didn't seem overly concerned that I was in AF and holding a heart rate of 80/90 bpm and told I was in controlled AF. I was then discharged and booked into my local GP later that morning.

The appointment didn't yield much movement apart from a referral to a specialist which would take approx 4 weeks.

He left me on my dose of Bisoprolol and told me to get back in touch if I felt any changes in the symptoms.

I have a feeling of been left in the dark, and as well as been quite worried that it all comes across a bit relaxed by the system when I myself am really worried!!!! Is it just me?

Has anybody felt similar?
