Is using vit e oil on a scar a problem for someone taking warfarin for atrial fib?

No: But it will not help improve the scar. Keep it lubricated with whatever you have. Vaseline is as good as anything. Don't fall for the hype: that's all it is.
Dr. Steve Kagan

No: A small amount of vitamin e oil on a scar is ok.

Vitamin K: Vitamin k is what you need to be cautious of with coumadin (warfarin).
