Were you having it checked weekly because it was erratic or often below your range ie usually 2-3?

I think my doctor was always afraid of it going low. My new doctor checks it once a month. The only time I have clots is when I'm off of it for more then three weeks and I had past doctor's take me off of it and the clots would always come back. When a doctor says you don't need blood thinner I change doctors.
