My INR has been decreasing despite of increased dosage of

My INR has been decreasing despite of increased dosage of warfarin. I started on Imuran about 3 months ago and slowly increased to 150 mg/day. The INR change did NOT occur immadiately after taking Imuran. I'm also on 10mg/day Prednisone which will be decreased slowly as the Imuran takes effect. I am now on 6mg/day warfarin. My diet has not changed much so I'm wondering if the Imuran is causing the INR decrease.

it is common that antibiotic eg amoxycillin taken while on warfarin dosage increases INR level, but my INR level in this situation has decreased to 1.4 (range 2-3); I have completed my week long dosage of the antibiotic and felt OK with no adverse symptons all along. My GP directed me to continue the same warfarin dosage and have INR check in a week for further directions
