This seems a strange thing to say as warfarin is usually used to keep your INR in the normal range or a little bit higher, not turn you into a haemophiliac.

A climbing friend has been on it for years after a heart attack without any problems.

As you probably know by now, be careful taking any antibiotics while on warfarin because they can kill your gut flora which makes a significant amount of vitamin K (a pro-coagulation factor). Hence your INR can really shoot up and you'll bleed.
