It is important to discuss any and all new medications and supplements with your doctor prior to using anything. Warfarin is not a drug to play around with

Benecol and warfarin: Benecol and warfarin should not have any significant interactions. However, you are on high risk medications in terms of drug-drug interactions with warfarin (esp flecainide). Always discuss with your healthcare provider when you start any new non-prescription ingredients (incl herbal teas, vitamins, etc) and any changes with your prescription medications.
