my husband takes warfarin daily, we are wondering if taking diatomaceous earth to help lower cholesterol and blood pressure with his warfarin would effect anything? ## Unfortunately, this is just a supplement product, so it has not actually been checked for interactions with prescription drugs. Thus, the best advice I can give would be that he check with his doctor or pharmacist, before taking it. Learn more Warfarin details here.

Coumadin vs warfarin
37 Replies RSS
My mom was on coumadin for many years but then her insurance company told her she had to take warfarin as this is the one they would pay for. Is there really any different in these two drugs? It seems to me that she has been having more problems with the warfarin (keeping this medication at the right level) than the coumadin. I was told they were the same medications and do the same. I just wanted to know if some people have difficulties taking warfarin vs coumadin??? Thanks. ## No, they work exactly the same for me. I have been taking one or the other for 3 1/2 years because of 2 pulmonary embolisms. I take 10mg a day. At times I go up and down but have been steady for a couple months now on warfarin. Food will change the way it works. Salads and some other greens really mess things up...

Can you recommend a tonic of vitamins
2 Replies RSS
Can you please advise me? My mother is 83 years old, she is taking Warfarin for a few years, she is extremely careful with this medication, she also suffers from Arthritis on her knee and wrists. Can you please advise me of a painkiller that she could take? Also I think she could benefit of taking a vitamin or a tonic. Any advise would be appreciated. ## glen - Who on earth are you asking to advise you about your mom's health needs? You're asking medical questions, some about serious medical issues. If she's taking Warfarin (a blood thinner), I'm assuming she has or has had problems with blood clots. Her arthritis might be helped by OTC anti-inflammatories but she may be helped far more by prescription medications in this category (I know I was) that she can only get fro...

Alpha gal allergy
1 Reply RSS
Does warfarin contain porcine intestine products? I was just diagnosed with alpha gal allergy and need to know if it will be a problem? ## What are the markings on the Warfarin that you have? Since this is a generic, it is manufactured by several different companies and the inactive ingredients may differ for all of them. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding, and easy bruising.

i need to know what kind of med take for pain while on warfarin 5mg
5 Replies RSS
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...
