My mother currently takes 1 mg of warfarin 4 days a week, & 2 mg 3 days a week. Is she able to take activated charcoal? I have heard this can help people with renal problems & she currently does dialisys 3 days a week. She takes BP medicine & also a fluid pill.
Any advice would be appreciated!!

Hello, Holly! How is your mother doing?

I didn't find any problems or interactions listed, but when taking a blood thinner, it is always best to double check with the patient's doctor to be sure.

The FDA lists the typical side effects of Warfarin as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and easy bruising.

What other medications does she take? Can you please post back with more details?
