There are many possible causes of wooziness at 93. Medications often top the list as most of us are taking quite a few meds by the time we reach this age, and the medications can interact. Warfarin is not thought to cause this problem by itself. However, it may interact with other medications she is taking and "gang up" to create wooziness. In addition, if the warfarin led to a bleed in the gut or the brain, it could also lead to wooziness. Check with her doctors to make sure she needs this medication, as it can be quite dangerous to take, particularly if there is a fall risk.
