Drink Beer Coumadin Warfarin
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 I occasionally have a beer or glass or wine (say every friday or saturday) while on a 10.75 mg dose of warfarin/coumadin?
As long as it's one: Don't push it. One glass a week is probably ok. ...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
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
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
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?
Yes.: Yes. There is nothing in the little bit of lime juice that you probably don't eat on a daily basis anyways. ...Read more

REF: http://www. Livestrong. Com/article/504737-how-much-raw-ginger-can-you-eat/ *** Ginger can change efficacy of blood thinners such as Warfarin. I would discuss specifics with your physician. ...Read more
Temp off Warfarin and on Lovenox (enoxaparin) injections twice a day. Drank on warfarin without issue, can I still have a few beers on the lovenox (enoxaparin)?
No: And I would ask why you aren't directing this question at the prescribers? I am sure if you asked your doctor whether it's ok to drink on Warfarin, s/he would tell you NO in no uncertain terms. Even moderate drinking impairs the metabolism of warfarin, often making you require higher doses, which is if you then lower your drinking may cause a high INR and bleeding risk. It is DANGEROUS. Stop. ...Read more
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
I just got off of my warfarin thursday, when can I start drinking alcohol without having a limit?
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
Not simple: Aloe juice has no legitimate, documented health benefit. If you drink it simply because you love the taste, then keep the amount constant every day. It may prolong the prothrombin time in a dose- dependent manner. The dose of coumidin will then be adjusted downward after your blood tests. ...Read more
Coming off warfarin in 3 days. Can I go back to eating and drinking what I want? My nurse said "i believe so", not a comforting response.

Green leafy vegies: Green leafy vegetables are rich in vitamin k and can affect bleeding time and should not be taken with coumadin (warfarin). ...Read more
Coumadin (warfarin) dose:
The usual dose of Coumadin (warfarin) is that which maintains your INR reading within therapeutic range which is INR 2.0 to INR 2.5.
The dose to achieve this is commonly 2.5 mg to 5 mg and is dependent on many variables, therefore the INR test is standard and necessary. ...Read more
Greens and such!: If you are on coumadin/warfarin, you should avoid foods high in vitamin k. If you eat set amounts of these foods on a daily basis, you shold inform the person managing your coumadin. Adjustments in your dosing will be made. You should either avoid them or maintain a steady state of the foods you eat. This is a very serious drug with complications and you must compy with care very closely. ...Read more
Avoid....: Herbs, dark leafy greens, broccoli, brussel sprouts, asparagus, cabbage and pickles all contain high amounts of vitamin k. These foods need to be eaten sparingly if you are on coumadin (warfarin). To keep your pt/inr level stable, you need to have a consistent intake of vitamin k. ...Read more
AllegraD / warfarin: I can find no warnings in the epocrates database for either fexfenadine or pseudoephedrine, the two ingredients in Allegra (fexofenadine) d regarding interactions with warfarin (coumadin). But just to be sure, check with your pharmacist and your cardiologist. If you are taking Coumadin for a heart condition, your doctor might prefer you take plain allegra (fexofenadine). The d part, sudafed, is a cardiac stimulant. ...Read more
