Marijuana and INR


  Does THC/ Marijuana have an effect on INR (coagulation)? I have recently received a mechanical aortic valve and need to know which of my habits to curtail!

Dear Lionel
I do not know, and no one I asked knows. I suspect that the issue has never been studied. It would be safer to stop smoking, both in terms of your INR and your overall health.
I hope this has been useful. I wish you the best of luck. Feel free to write back.
