Thanks for writing in.
I am a qualified and certified cardiologist and I read your question with diligence.
No such side effects have been reported by Warfarin or for that matter Betaloc. With Betaloc there is at least a theoretical possibility of such side effects as reported in medical literature which I reviewed specifically to be able to answer your question.
I am happy that despite symptoms and continue to work as you desire. My suggestion is thyroid function tests need to be done and may be you will have to see your General Practitioner for it. I am assuming you are not having fever and your appetite is normal. Regards.
If you have any more followup question, I will be only too happy to answer. Good Luck.
With best wishes.
