I am on 2 mg warfarin a day - my gastroenterologist is tapering me off budesonide and told me to take 2 pepto bismol tablets 3 times a day. Before buying it I check the label and there is a warning about anticoagulants and the pepto. I called the gastro doc and talked to his nurse and she told me that he knew I was on warfarin and it was okay. Still skeptical???

I walked upstairs and was slightly out of breath. I sat down and noticed my heart rate was elevated but no pain or discomfort. I then noticed I could see my heart rate in my eyes as it caused them to pulse. I'm just wondering if that is a problem.
