If i took 70 pill of warfarin and they where 5mgs a peace would it kill me??

Why ask the question: Perhaps, perhaps not, but more troubling is the question itself. There is no logical reason why anyone would take 70 tablets of warfarin, even by mistake. If you are feeling depressed, I would strongly suggest that you seek immediate help from a friend, parent, church official or doctor.

Is redbush tea safe with warfarin?

Is redbush tea safe with warfarin?
