Is the weight loss pill "hydroxycut" safe and can it be taken by coumadin (warfarin) patients?

DIet PIlls are bad: Nope. Not in any way. This pill will not lead to real or sustained weight loss. If you have other medications that can save your life like warfarin then this kind of unnecessary medication is to be fully avoided. If there truly were a 'weight loss' pill then every television, internet and medical outlet would be talking about it and prescribing it. Please do not take this ineffective medication.

No and no: I agree with dr. Killian. I wouldn't encourage the use of hydroxycut whether taking Coumadin (warfarin) or otherwise.
