Lowers INR: If you eat spinach, turnip greens, broccoli, brussels sprouts, parsley or other leafy greens, this may counteract the effect of Coumadin (warfarin) on blood clotting, making your blood thicker and lowering your inr. If you like leafy greens, you should eat a consistent amount each week and titrate your Coumadin (warfarin) dosage based on that.

Does taking karatom effect Coumadin (warfarin) level?

Kratom?: There is no listing for karatom. I assume you mean kratom? The answer is: no one knows. It's never been systematically studied. I read about this herb: http://www.Erowid.Org/plants/kratom/kratom_effects.Shtml - like so many herbs, it claims highly variable and opposite effects. My personal feeling is that it is foolish to use such drugs - you have no idea what you're actually getting.
