can warfarin and adco dol be taken together

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?

imprint 324 blue round, scored but blank on other side

I found a pill and need to know what it is. Does a opioid 30 mg have 324 on it? ## Hi Chicky, After doing a lot of digging on the internet, I couldn't locate an exact match to your pill. Pretty much all of the closely related descriptions and images I saw were of oblong or capsule shaped pills.

Is it something that could've been brought back from overseas? ## Warfarin 3mg is blue with same number on the front
