I use the farmacia in Isla Plana he does them but going to ask a few more places as it is 12€ a pop. I would suggest trying the one on Campasol A rather than go to a Dr first, do let me know how you get on?

I too take warfarin and as I sometimes miss an inr test when I am in Spain, my phlebotomist suggested I ask my Doctor to change to a newer anticoagulant which doesnt require blood tests. Maybe you could ask your Doctor before you go to Spain.

Hi unfortunately I can’t change to an easier and less dangerous treatment.

Hi again, I doubt that I will be able to change as I'm on quite a high dosage but worth asking thank you.

You could buy your own machine and test strips?
