Warfarin Overview

Warfarin (also known by the brand names Coumadin, Jantoven, Marevan, Uniwarfin, Warf) 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.

i need to know what kind of med take for pain while on warfarin 5mg
I have a lot of different illness and pain, I used to take tylonol ibuprofin etc, but started taking warfarin 5mg to thin blood and now they say i cannot take pain pills that also thin the blood. Q. what can I take for pain that will not interfere?? ## Hi Martha, From what I've read, Ibuprofen and Acetaminophen are two types of pain medications that do not thin the blood in and of themselves. So the OTC meds you were on prior to starting Warfarin are both fine in that regard. However, I would still recommend talking with your doctor first just to be on the safe side. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Warfarin Details Have you also considered looking into things like acupuncture or essential oils for additional pain relief? ## But I have a read that ibuprofen can mak...

pro time at 300
My Dr. Tested me today. I have been taking coumadin for over one month @ 5mg one day, then 6 for two, and repeating. My level was 300! That seems high to me as my goal was 200. My Dr. Told me he didn't need to see me for a whole month now, and I am concerned my levels will keep going up! Any feedback? Thank you!

supradol warfarin
Can I take supradol (after tooth extraction) while taking warfarin? ## Hello, D! How are you? Sorry about the dental problem. No, you shouldn't take this, unless your doctor specifically tells you that it is safe for you to do so. Supradol contains the active ingredient Ketorolac, which is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory and it can actually cause additional blood thinning. Is there anything else I can help with?
