Dear Sir, Madam, Friend of mine is taking Warfarin, prescribed by his doctor, and is not able to stabilise - his blood findings/readings are always different according to his doctor. Would there be reason why is that and is there any other drug similar to Warfarin he can ask for and use it instead? Thank you

I have many pills of Norco 5-325MG left over that was prescribed when I broke my clavicle. It was effective in reducing pain, but I limited the number of pills I took. I will have surgery Monday to partially remove a toenail. Is it OK to take the Norco which also contains Acetamenphine for pain from the toe surgery? I also take warfarin.
