WarfarinDoesNotThin: blood. Like all routinely mis-described agents, it slows clotting by inactivating 4 of 12 clotting proteins; any bleeding takes longer to stop & more blood lost. Blood in vomit (from trauma of vomiting) due to ?ed bleeding, thus apparent. INR (Nl=1.0)=a way of expressing how much clotting has slowed. Xarelto (INR does not show; not needed)=more effective&safer anti-clotting tool; works differently ...Read more

How long after begin off Coumadin (warfarin) can I start back enjoying vitamin K foods and red wine?

How long after begin off Coumadin (warfarin) can I start back enjoying vitamin K foods and red wine?

Immediately for K...: The reason to avoid vit k on Coumadin (warfarin) is that it reduces the effectiveness of Coumadin (warfarin) (though i advise people eat consistent levels of food with k & adjust Coumadin (warfarin) dose accordingly) so you can eat k right away. Alcohol can thin the blood so one should limit to 2 glasses of wine/day while on it. Within 5 days of stopping (sooner if you eat k foods) Coumadin (warfarin) is out of your body so occ. More is ok. ...Read more

Other symptoms?: You may be describing a resolving or an ongoing hematoma.
