    Thanks for sharing. I tried it out and was pleased that the on-line calculator matched what my pump head brain (trained by Al's chart) would do.

    This is neat...my husband was trying to creat such a system for me using Al's chart as a guide. But of course, he did not have the time yet. Will show him this. Thanks for sharing, Ross.

    Question: What day should I put at the top? Day 1 or day 6?

    Don't use both parts. Either your just starting or your continuing. All you need fill in is either the total weekly amount your taking or the daily amount your taking and check the appropriate box and set what your current INR is and calculate.

    hi ross

    in the past, you have expressed concerns about the accuracy of online inr calculators.

    is this a proven system that you have got faith in?

    Westie, I believe you are referring to the software programs that we have discussed in the past and had concerns about.
    This one is more of a fancy calculator. It's perfect.

    Software programs I don't trust until they've proven correct. This calculator comes up with the same answers I would on my own calculator.

    This calculator just take the guidelines (such as I've always used from this site http://www.aafp.org/afp/990201ap/635.html) and uses it as the basis for it's calculations. I've found it helpful. Not as much brain work.

    I found this today:

    http://www.pharmgkb.org/download.act...or_6-19-09.xls

    seems very close to my dose. Given I don't know my factors for VKORC1 or CYP2C9 genotype I tried a few options and found my does in the middle of the various ranges generated by the various settings for these.
