Does Garcinia Cambogias Interact With Warfarin
3 Replies RSS
Is taking Garcinia Cambogias contraindicated for people taking Warfarin? Thanks Pat ## Hi Pat, Based on my research, when it comes to most herbal supplements, the drug interactions with prescription drugs are not well known until they have been around a long time. The majority of herbal supplements are usually well tolerated and don't interact but it's impossible to know for sure. If I can make any suggestions, it would be to let your doctor know that you are taking this supplement and to monitor any side effects while taking the Garcinia Cambogias and Warfarin together. If it were me, I would just take some notes based on how I'm feeling after starting the supplement- just to be aware of any odd changes that might occur. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Wa...

Flomax and Warfarin interaction
2 Replies RSS
I have a mechanical heart valve and I'm on Warfarin. My doctor wants me to take Flomax. Has anyone heard of any drug interactions between Flomax and Warfarin? ## I haven't been able to find any interactions listed by the FDA, or NIH, so far, but it is always best to double check to be careful. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Flomax as possibly including nausea, dizziness, stomach pain, and urinary retention. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank You :) It has caused my INR to go higher. I get it checked every week.

Warfarin Nerve & Joint Pain
2 Replies RSS
I was started on Warfarin in May 2016. Dx: Pericarditis w Afib. Mid July 2016, I had a ruptured foot tendon accompanied by severe nerve pain in feet & tingling in my lips. I spoke with the doctor on call & was told it could not be the Warfarin. In June 2017, the joint & nerve pain & toe pain became so severe that I stopped the Warfarin & started Nattokinase. Yes I have been on Metoprolol & realize that can have the same side effects, but my question is specific to Warfarin. Thank you for having this great chat line. ## Yes, those can be side effects of Warfarin, according to FDA reports. It may also cause nausea, dizziness, increased risk of bleeding, and easy bruising. As to Nattokinase, that is just a supplement, so it has not been tested and proven to help wit...

Coumadin vs warfarin
40 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...

Hello, I cannot find any information on taking the supplement "Sam-e" (S-Adenosylmethionine) with warfarin. would love to find out if this can be taken while on a blood thinner ## Hello, Diana! How are you? It isn't advisable, the Mayo Clinic notes that SAMe can affect your risk of bleeding when taking with blood thinners, such as Warfarin or anticoagulants. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Warfarin as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and easy bruising.

Blue pill A324 on one side, R and a thin crescent moon on the other
2 Replies RSS
Can someone please help me identify these pills? They are blue-speckled pills with an R and a thin crescent moon on one side and A 324 on the other with a score between the A and 324.... Thank you ## Hey I've got the same pills. They were marketed as 10mg Valium, however I don't trust them and rightly so as I can't for the life of me trace them. The closest I got from searching was that they are black market, so could have benzodiazepine in them or none at all. A pal of mine was willing to try one and he said he felt a short lived effect. His UDS came up positive for benzos but to be fair he did take a 20mg temazepam too. I know it's not much to go on. I don't recommend black market pills as you don't know how much of the active ingredient is in each pill. I'...

How will temazapam affect warfarin level ## Hello, Robyn! How are you? I didn't find any problems or interactions listed between these two medications, but you should always double check such information to be sure.

diatomaceous earth with warfarin
4 Replies RSS
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. When taking Warfarin, one's INR can be very touchy, so it's always best to be cautious. Are there any other questions or comments? ## Verwon supplements are so popular today they should know if DE would interact with warfarin um I mean RAT poison..........
