Help: My Dr. turned me down cause I didn't have the money to see ...
I've been taking Zinnat that I got from an undisclosed country. I've been taking it as it is usually prescribed and recommended by Dr's. However my Dr. doesn't know this and I have a preexistsing condition that requires me to take Warfarin 15mg. However, Zinnat has blood thinning characteristics that I should beware about. How do I get better and informed if my Dr [whom I've been seeing for over three years now] won't see me? I have stopped taking the regular dose of Warfarin as a safety precaution so that I don't bleed to death internally by taking it with the Zinnat.
