when taking warfarin,is it normal to cough up bloody sputum when your blood test shows the warfarin dose is to high,and when the dose is decreased then the bloody sputum stops.The person does have a persistant cough first thing in  the mornings..From pearlyshells.

I am on coumadin (warfarin) long term due to having a pulmonary embolism as well as other high risk problems. If the INR level is too high then a person would be more predisposed to bleed..their blood would be too thin. Coughing up blood warrants a talk with the doctor...especially because the INR levels are high. It sounds like this person might be coughing so hard that if his blood is already too thin, he will burst a few small capillaries and bleed some. It also makes sense that if the levels are within range (INR levels) then he will be less likely to bleed with his coughing. If his doctor is unaware of his bleeding, then he should talk to him or her about it....Sunny
