Help plz! Can sedatives interact with warfarin?

Yes: Warfarin is metabolized by the liver, there are multiple substances that can increase the rate of it's breakdown (enzyme inducers) which might lead to a decreased blood-thinning effect. Converslely, there are drugs that slow down this process and may lead to risk of bleeding. I would suggest discussing specifics with your doctor or pharmacist. Hope that helps ...Read more

Does coconut interact with warfarin?

Does coconut interact with warfarin?

Probably safe: I am unaware of direct interactions between coconut oil and warfarin. I don't find really any good studies addressing this specific interaction. I can tell you that coconut itslef is not considered a high source of Vitamin K which would automatically rule it out as a food choice. Here is a link that may help give you more info.: http://www.

On warfarin; Like to do some liver detox. Does it negatively interact with Warfarin? If no issues, which products are suitable. Thank you

On warfarin; Like to do some liver detox. Does it negatively interact with Warfarin? If no issues, which products are suitable. Thank you

"Liver detox": Other than avoiding obvious liver toxins, such as alcohol and higher than normal doses of acetaminophen (Tylenol) and losing weight if you need to, the liver has no need for "detoxification." There are no products which have been shown in well-done studies to benefit liver function in this way. Don't waste your money on products that claim otherwise. Good luck. ...Read more

Does cannabis interact with cumadin/warfarin? I know that alcohol heightens irn, does marijuana lower it?

Does cannabis interact with cumadin/warfarin? I know that alcohol heightens irn, does marijuana lower it?

Don't know...: We don't know, as far as I can tell it has not been studied. I do know that smoking of any type, increases the risk of vascular events of the type we are generally trying to prevent with anti-coagulation with drugs like coumadin/warfarin. But as for directly affecting inr, we don't really know. Coumadin/warfarin is a dangerous drug with a narrow therapeutic window. I would advise caution. ...Read more

I take warfarin and have been diagnosed with high cholesterol, what can eat to lower cholesterol and will not interact with warfarin?

I take warfarin and have been diagnosed with high cholesterol, what can eat to lower cholesterol and will not interact with warfarin?

Eat good foods: The ideal diet to lower cholesterol is a vegetarian diet. You don't have to be a vegetarian but your diet should be heavy on fruits and vegetables, light on meat. Fish is good. Carbs are okay. Your warfarin dose will be adjusted to your diet, not the other way round. The key to warfarin is to try to eat relatively consistently and to be aware which foods have a lot of vit k. (google this). ...Read more

I take warfarin how do tumeric, chilli, chia seeds, garlic, onions, ginger stinging nettle tea interact with warfarin?

I take warfarin how do tumeric, chilli, chia seeds, garlic, onions, ginger stinging nettle tea interact with warfarin?

It's complicated but: I dislike warfarin because virtually every medicine and herb interacts with it. Turmeuric, chia seeds, garlic and ginger also thin blood and thus you might need to lower the dose. Rather than avoiding these one can consume consistent amounts & adjust coumadin accordingly or one can consider alternative meds or even supplements (under doc's guidance) to thin blood.

Extra care: Several medications can interact with warfarin including Diltiazem and digoxin. It does not mean you cannnot take warfarin but your dose has to be regulated even more closely when a new medication is started. Also it is important to check digoxin level when a new medicine such as warfarin is started. In addition monitor your blood sugars more closely with new medicines so it is not too low. ...Read more

Explain the effects of warfarin tablets.?

Explain the effects of warfarin tablets.?

Effects of Warfarin: Warfarin is a vitamin k antagonist, hence it will block all the vit k dependent clotting factors preventing the formation of the fibrin clot. It effectively delays your blood from clotting. It is important to take the right dose so the blood clotting is delayed to an optimum time. This is done by checking pt (prothrombin or factor ii time) and inr. Details of this will be out of scope. ...Read more
