Can I Drink Coffee While On Coumadin
Yes: The fact is, you can eat just about anything you just have to be careful to try to keep your vitamin k intake consistent from day to day. In other words, don't eat a huge baby spinach salad today and tomorrow and nothing with vitamin k the next. ...Read more
Is it okay to take green coffee bean extract if I am on a blood thinner (coumadin)? And can't drink green tea?
I would like to take green coffee bean supplements for weight loss. I am taking Coumadin (warfarin) after a mechanical aortic valve replacement surgery 9 years a?
I'm on Coumadin (warfarin) and everyweek I loose blood could this make me dhydrated if so what do I drink?
Just liquids: Coumadin (warfarin) is a blood thinner, it reduces clotting: how are you losing blood? Only trauma (a cut, bruise etc) would allow the effects of Coumadin (warfarin) to reduce blood volume. Your dosage may need to changed. Speak to an md, especially a hematologist. Hydration has no effect on how the medication works, other than it is healthy to stay hydrated. ...Read more
Sure BUT!!!!: I would advise anyone on Coumadin (warfarin) not to drink and if so, to drink no more that 1-2 ounces of alcohol in a 24 hour period. The risk of falls and severe injury, bleeding and even death is too great. The physical and immediate act fo taking the dose with alcohol is probably not a major issue, but why would you do it? There are not many medications that I take more serious than using coumadin (warfarin). ...Read more
Warfarin: You can drink grape juice with warfarin. ...Read more
What vitamin can I take while on Coumadin (warfarin) my body trembles alot. Is this because of constant blood being drawn from me. I don't smoke drink or do drugs?
I believe you can drink grape juice on Coumadin, (warfarin) but is it safe to drink Welches 100% purple grape juice?
Grape juice: 100% purple grape juice should be just fine with coumadin (warfarin). The issue is how much vitamin K is in there, and it is fairly low. I always recommend my patients eat a healthy diet, and keep the amount of vitamin K steady day in and out so that their dosing of the coumadin (warfarin) can also be steady. Best wishes to you! ...Read more
Can you drink lime juice - just a small amount added to water, if you are on coumadin, (warfarin) flecainide and bisoperal fumerate?

I've been on Coumadin (warfarin) for 6 months and stopped taking it 5 days ago by doctor's order. Is it safe to drink alcohol again or do I need an inrtest first?
No one knows 4 sure: Warfarin is probably my least favorite of all pharmaceuticals because virtually every medicine & food seems to affect it & things that increase its activity can be dangerous. I thus try to use alternative treatments. However, regular coffee does not seem to affect it much & green coffee likely also does not. I can't find any research on this. If you take it be sure to monitor your protime to see. ...Read more
Warfarin: I have been able to find no interaction between green coffee bean extract and warfarin. The warfarin needs to be monitored in any case so should you try coffee bean extract, any problems with anticoagulation should be detected. ...Read more
Mon I ran 4 mi (1st run for 3 wks) and I had dark urine. Drank a lot of coffee before run. Also accidentally took warfarin with Pradaxa (inconsistently) for a month. Can I exercise? How long before normalize? I'm 47/f/non-sm
Bad idea: Since warfarin works by interfering with the liver's production of clotting factors and heavy alcohol can damage the liver (or at least gives it alot of extra work to do) drinking while on warfarin is a bad idea. Someone in this position should be honest with their doctor - there may be a medication that better suits the situation. ...Read more
Is it ok to drink beer while on warfarin? If so, hoe much is too much? And how is it ok to drink?
Not a good idea: Warfarin is very sensitive to changes in the body, and to changes in one's diet or medications. If a person absolutely must drink alcoholic beverages, she has to work out a plan with her primary doctor to follow the changes in blood test results and adjustments in medication dose. That's probably the only way to figure out how much of an effect a given amount of alcohol has on one specific person. ...Read more
Can my husband drink Hibiscus Tea if he is on Warfarin. He take 5mg. Daily. His INR has to be 2.0 to 3.0...Thank you?
Not sure: I couldn't find anything specifically about HIBISCUS tea, but tea in general can both antagonize warfarin (lower the INR) and also promote bleeding by interfering with platelet function which won't show up in the INR. That said, I'll bet a lot of people on warfarin drink tea, so if he loves tea, I'd say use it cautiously and monitor the INR. ...Read more
