In brief: DVT

This can get tricky.
If the energy drink has added vitamins in the mix, then it could have additional vitamin k in it. If you are taking warfarin for a blood thinner for the dvt, then it is possible that the vitamin k will work against the affects of the warfarin making the adjustment of the correct dose of the warfarin more difficult to attain.
