Coumadin Lovenox Bridge
Can be a factor: Flax seed oil makes platelets more slippery and therefore reduce clotting. When combined with Coumadin (warfarin) this can be a factor for increasing bleeding and potentially dangerous. Close followup with your physician to monitor your protimes will help to reduce this risk and allow you to enjoy the benefits of the flax seed oil.See 1 more doctor answer

Pulmonary embolism: Can be fatal if they are big enough. When your doctor investigated its source, he probably could not find it, if he did not recommend any other treatment. You should be on anticoagulants to minimize recurrence. And you should stop taking any meds that might predispose you, such as birth control pills, and stop smoking if you do smoke. Talk to your doctor on how to minimize your future risk.

My mom is on coumadin (warfarin) and lovenox but her INR is only 1.3. She recently had a stroke nd dvt. Isn't she at risk of another stroke with low INR?
No: Lovenox provides anti coagulation while Coumadin (warfarin), (warfarin) which takes a long time to have a complete effect, as measured by INR, starts to work. She's not at increased risk. Make sure to look at the dietary restrictions and drug interactions with Coumadin (warfarin) which might be the reason the INR is still low.See 1 more doctor answer

DVT in left calf diagnosed a week ago. On Lovenox (2x day) and 5mg Coumadin (warfarin). Experiencing left sided tingling in leg, arm and head (slight headache too). Is this a side affect from meds?
Blood thinners: Headaches are not a usual side effect of Coumadin (warfarin). If this is a new headache or a variation of the usual headaches then seek medical attention to make sure there is no bleeding in the brain. The risk of bleeding is low (1.5%) but headaches are a concern that needs medical attention.See 1 more doctor answer

I'm currently taking coumadin, (warfarin) I just realized that I might be pregnant. Will there be any lasting effects to the baby if I switch to enoxaparin asap?
A shot and not: As dr. Milstone said, Coumadin (warfarin) in a pill and Lovenox is a shot. The amount of Coumadin (warfarin) you take has to be checked with blood tests on a regular basis. Lovenox does not but Lovenox can cause a very serious side effect involving your platelets that Coumadin (warfarin) doesn't. Lovenox is expenisve, Coumadin (warfarin) is much cheaper. Both can cause bleeding. If that happens, the effects of Lovenox reverse faster.See 1 more doctor answer
Semantics: All drugs have a generic name, which is assigned to the molecule that has the pharmacological effect in the body, and a brand name that is proprietary to a specific drug manufacturer. Warfarin is the generic name for the anti-coagulant that inhibits vitamin-k dependent clotting factors; "coumadin" is simply the brand name of the formulation made by a specific manufacturer.
