will it be ok to take amla syrup daily for a patient who takes warfarin?

It appears that: this concoction contains iron and vitamins and is an unregulated product. This means that the concentrations of its components is not standardized. Potentially there are significant variations in the amount of vitamin K and other factors present. In general warfarin is prescribed for significant or potentially life threatening conditions. Amma syrup will affect this. It is NOT ok to use it.
