I have had a aortic valve replaced in 1991, i have been on coumadin since. I had the mitral valve replaced 2011 and both valves are mechanical. I have to take coumadin to prevent blood clots from forming. I can only take coumadin, wharfarin does'nt work for my body. My charts show it and my list of medicines have it so i get coumadin instead of wharfarin to keep my INR within the limits.
