Warfarin requires a doctor prescription, ask your doctor.  My assumption is you'd go back to whatever worked before.  Taking Warfarin does require regular blood tests of the clotting factor of your treated blood.  I have to do it once a month.  That adds to the cost of taking Warfarin.

On the other hand, my cardiologist has made it clear to me these two medications are not interchangeable.  I take Warfarin to reduce clot formation, Plavix will not do that for me.
