Warfarin Overview

Warfarin, sold under the brand name Coumadin among others,[1] is a medication that is used as an anticoagulant (blood thinner).[4] It is commonly used to treat blood clots such as deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism and to prevent stroke in people who have atrial fibrillation, valvular heart disease or artificial heart valves.[4] Less commonly it is used following ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and orthopedic surgery.[4] It is generally taken by mouth but may also ...

Warfarin and Damiana
1 Reply RSS Share
Does anybody take Damiana and Warfarin, and would there be any interaction between the two? I have tried Maca with Warfarin but my INR was 5.1. ## In my personal investigation, there appear to be no drug interaction studies between pharmaceutical preparations and most OTC herbal supplements; including Damiana. That said, the general consensus is to talk with your prescribing doctor before adding any herbal supplements to your prescription regimen. You could also try consulting a naturopathic physician who understands how certain plants function in our bodies (via their mechanism of action) relative to blood thinners such as Warfarin. Sorry I couldn't be of more help, but it's best to be on the safe side, especially if you're going to be on Warfarin for any extended length of...

can warfarin and adco dol be taken together
3 Replies RSS Share
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? ## Im suffering with migranes is it safe to drink Adco- Dol while im using Wafarin 5mg daily ## can i take Piascledine capsules when taking Warfarin

Hi. I have been taking warfarin for 4 months. Prior to my PE when landing home from a long flight I was very active running and swimming every day. Since the attack every muscle and many leg joints ache all the time. Is this a side effect from medication? Thanks. ## The symptoms you're experiencing may be the sign of a possibly serious side effect of the medication. Learn more Warfarin details here. Have you consulted your doctor? ## haha sounds about right I have spoken to the doc and he said take pain killers, dont know what else I expected from him ,, will only be on warfarin for 8 more weeks ,so then maybe the pain will go ,just seems to be the lower half of thr body,,and getting spasams in the calfs,,, dont know how they decide if things are ok ,when I had the P E , was told t...

Warfarin and Pain Medications.
2 Replies RSS Share
I understand that it is alright to take Tylenol when on Warfarin which I am doing but for awhile taking Tylenol did actually effect my INR results and the Warfarin dosage had to be altered accordingly. I have been diagnosed with Bursitis and the Tylenol is not helping at all but I hesitate to try any other pain medication if there is one that is compatible with Warfarin. Seems to me when on Warfarin there are so many limitations. ## There are others you can try, if your doctor approves, they just have to be ones that don't cause additional blood thinning, such as Oxycodone, Hydrocodone, Morphine, or other opiates. The NIH warns that they carry the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation, and dry mouth. Only your physi...

Coumadin vs warfarin
42 Replies RSS Share
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...

Interaction with S-Adenosylmethionine?
4 Replies RSS Share
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. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi, Can you post a link that shows Mayo Clinic indicating risk of interact between Warfarin and S-adenosylmethionine? I cannot find anything on that. Thanks! ## Hi. I'm taking s-adonasyl... sam-e 400 mg tablet. Can i take a tada...

Does Garcinia Cambogias Interact With Warfarin
3 Replies RSS Share
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 Share
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 Share
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...
