Warfarin Overview

Warfarin, also known by the brand names Coumadin among others, 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.

can warfarin and adco dol be taken together
1 Reply RSS
My chemist gave me adco-dol for pain relief. I use 10mg warfarin daily will there be any harm in using it together ## Hello, Norman! How are you? There's a chance that it could also cause some additional blood thinning, so it would be best not to take it, until you check with your doctor. It also carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, insomnia, nervousness and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with?

Coumadin vs warfarin
36 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...
