I had a heart valve replacement 12 years ago. I need to take warfarin to avoid blood clots on the valve. I have been reading about the newer blood thinners that dont require regular blood tests. I am tired of so many blood tests. Can I ask my doctor about making a switch?
My two-year-old daughter wakes up many nights in a fit of terror, screaming, hitting, and pushing away. Her pediatrician said that the problem is nightmares and will pass. We have tried everything and it does not seem to subside.
