Warfarin Overview

Warfarin (also known by the brand names Coumadin, Jantoven, Marevan, Uniwarfin) is an anticoagulant normally used in the prevention of thrombosis and thromboembolism, the formation of blood clots in the blood vessels and their migration elsewhere in the body, respectively. It was initially introduced in 1948 as a pesticide against rats and mice, and is still used for this purpose, although more potent poisons such as brodifacoum have since been developed.

I am on warfarin and just crack from Mexico. Can I take this? ## My findings state that there are potentially unsafe interactions between Warfarin and Sulfamethoxazole. Quoted below are the precautions you should be aware of: "Using warfarin together with sulfamethoxazole may increase the risk of bleeding, especially if you are elderly or have kidney or liver impairment. You may need more frequent monitoring of your prothrombin time or INR by your doctor to safely use both medications. Call your doctor promptly if you experience any unusual bleeding or bruising, swelling, vomiting, blood in your urine or stools, headache, dizziness, or weakness during treatment with these medications. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and her...

Strepsils with Warfarin
1 Reply RSS
Hi, I have been on warfarin for three weeks for arterial fibrillation and am waiting for a second valve replacement. Also I am diabetic (diet controlled). I've had a really bad sore throat and cough. Can I take strepsils with warfarin? ## Hello, Tina! How are you? I am very sorry about the health problem you have. Which Strepsils formulation? I'm sorry, but I can't give you a precise answer, without knowing which one, so I know what the ingredients are that are in it. Has your doctor given you any medication or dietary restrictions? Are you on any other medications? The FDA lists the typical side effects of Warfarin as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and increased risk of bleeding.

What do you mean by exited? Do you mean processed out of your body?

Hi I've been on warfarin for 2 months now from blood clots and I'm planning on going out for my birthday , I haven't drank anything since I was diagnosed but I really want to enjoy myself .I know the recommend intake of alcohol is 3 units but I was just wondering if I had any more than that ( say 5 units altogether ) would I be able to lessen the effects of the alcohol thinning my blood by taking some vitamin k the day before, day of and after? Or even taking less mg that day?

My husband just had triple bypass surgery. A normal week for us would be salad with chicken on sat. some broc. or spinach with chicken on a week night. Another night a piece of fish with asparagus etc. I am now in a panic, because I don't know what to stop or not? All I read is be consistant? Should I remove some greens? We don't eat greens every day, but at least 3-4 times a week. Thank You ## Hello, Mimi! How are you? Generally, you should avoid high amounts of any goods that contain a lot of vitamin K, such as spinach and dark leafy greens. The FDA classifies Coumadin as a blood thinner and lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, easy bruising and increased risk of bleeding. Is there anything else I can help with?

Warfarin and Cymbalta?
1 Reply RSS
I take Warfarin due to a history of DVTs, and I also suffer from depression and pretty significant anxiety (GAD). After trying other meds that didn't work, my Dr prescribed Cymbalta. Rxlist indicates a moderate interaction risk, and I saw one message board where people were sharing horror stories about mixing these meds, but the pharmacist said they're safe to use together. Does anyone here have experience with these drugs together? Did they do okay or were there problems? TIA ## Hello, My3sons! How are you? I haven't taken either one, but I can provide you information on the possible interaction. Taking them together could actually result in your needing a lower dose of Warfarin, because the Cymbalta tends to increase the levels of it. Other side effects for Cymbalta, as li...
