Advice & Tips: While using this medication be VERY careful what you do. Since you bruise so easy and we all know that the bruises hurt, just be careful what you do. You may think you are okay until you wake up the next morning with bruises you aren't sure where they came from. I always felt tired on this medication and lost my breath easy, since being off of it I have been able to do more. So be careful while taking this medication and ALWAYS get your INR checked like your suppose to. Having numbers to high will actually hurt you worse than anything.
