TAILIEUCHUNG - Trường Hợp Lâm Sàng Dùng Warfarin

Anyway, I have 2 cases of patients who are on long-term Coumadin therapy. The INR results make us wonder about the use of multiple CYP2C9 inhibitors with wafarin. Patient #1: 75 yo caucasian male with afib. Warfarin dosed at 24 mg/wk, chronically on Amiodarone ( 10 years d/t hx of ventricular arrhythmias). Started Bactrim DS x10 days on Jan 25th. He notified anticoag clinic on Jan 29th and his dose was reduced by 50% for 2 days and INR checked yesterday (day 6 of Bactrim). One would expect the INR to be somewhat elevated considering Bactrim-warfarin interaction, but INR. | Trường Hợp Lâm Sàng Dùng Warfarin Anyway I have 2 cases of patients who are on long-term Coumadin therapy.

Warfarin dosed at 40 mg wk on Amiodarone for past 4 months for afib. Started Bactrim DS x 7 days on Jan 25th. He notified anticoag clinic on Jan 25 and his dose was reduced to mg daily little more than 50 dose reduction . INR check yesterday day 6 of Bactrim . INR was below therapeutic since slightly greater than 50 dose reduction for ease in patient instructions. Patient 1 is still presenting a challenge- after the 1 31 INR the dose of warfarin adjusted to only a 19 reduction from his maintenance dose rather than the initial 50 reduction but his INR continued to drop to . He is now finished with bactrim so have now resumed his usual 24 mg wk with an INR scheduled later this week. Patient 2 was pretty straightforward as he only had 3 doses of bactrim remaining. His usual 40 mg wk dosage was resumed and his INR on 2 14 was After all the prevailing theory is more related to interpersonal differences in metabolism producing the varying response to bactrim.
