Hi Mirela,

According to the MayoClinic, patients using anticoagulants, or other blood thinners, should consult a licensed practitioner before using L-arginine or B12.

This is not to say that it can't be done, but you'll still want to double-check with your doctor on this one, as there are no drug interaction checkers that determine the safety of using Rx meds along with dietary supplements.

I do know that both supplements have the potential to interact (based on their blood thinning properties), so in that sense I think it was wise of you to wait and ask first before taking such risks.

It's really just a matter of the extent of these risks in relation to how much you're taking. Safe dosing is something your doctor should be able to go over with you in order to make the most of each one without compromising the effects of coumadin.

I hope this helps!

showed it to my doctor at the hospital, he said ok, I think he was a specialist treating me in the ER that night, also went to the arginine web site and they have a chat line, the lady there said as far as we know it isn't a problem with Rx drugs...she's a rep for the company, she did go on to say to check with my doctor.
Haven't spoken with my VA doctor yet, but VA doesn't really recommend vitamins etc.
although my doctor has given me fish oil in the past.
