Does Warfarin Interact With Any Gingko
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 we'll-done studies to benefit liver function in this way. Don't waste your money on products that claim otherwise. Good luck. ...Read more
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 discusding specifics with your doctor or pharmacist. Hope that helps ...Read more

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

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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?
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.
