Vitamins & Coumadin (warfarin) Before taking any vitamin supplements, please make sure that they don't contain any vitamin k (phytonadione). Also be wary of anything that contains garlic, ginseng, gingko, or oily supplements such as vitamin E or fish oil since these can further thin the blood and increase the risk of bleeding while taking coumadin (warfarin).
Maybe. Look at the components of the vitamin. If vitamin k is an ingredient, it may interfere with the effect of coumadin, (warfarin) in which case you would not want to start it untill you had discussed it with your doctor.
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?
Vitamins. There are multivitamins without vitamin k in the market that you can take. Just make sure there is no vitamin k in them. For trembling please talk to your doctor.
My mom takes coumadin, (warfarin). Is it safe for her to take centrum cardio vitamins (with plant phytols) to help lower her cholesterol?
Check vitamin k. Check for vitamin k in vitamins that can interfere with Coumadin (warfarin) effect.
Yes. I truly believe that high antioxidant levels in the blood is the key to fight disease states. Although vitamin k can counteract the affects of coumadin, (warfarin) I would much rather have my patients eat whole foods like fruits and veggies and take a slightly higher dose of Coumadin (warfarin) than deny themselves these potent antioxidants. A diet rich in especially berries can raise HDL (good cholesterol).
Yes. Just have her inr rechecked after being on any new supplements to make sure it does not interact with her coumadin (warfarin).
Dose Coumadin (warfarin) have vitamin K in it if so, do u have any sugesstions on what veggies I can eat?
Coumadin (warfarin) inhibits K. 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.
Be constant. There are diff ways to manage vegetables with coumadin (warfarin). I prefer this way: it is safe to eat any green veges, but must eat about the same amount every day. Your dose of Coumadin (warfarin) is adjusted to your diet. This way is safer and gives better results.
No. Food riich in vitamin k - dark green leafy vegeatable are higer in vitamin k. Liver is good as well but it is high in cholesterol so I don't usually recommend them.
Patient on coumadin (warfarin). Levels checked. 9.6. Where is it supposed to be. Dr ordered vitamin k. Doing better. Levels coming down?
9.6 is high. 9.6 is high on Coumadin (warfarin) we do prothrombin time and inr. The test done is pt;inr normal inr is 1 we like to keep inr between 2to 3.5 depending what you are treating 9.6 is very high and there is risk of serious bleeding that's why your doctor has ordered vitk to neutralize the effect of Coumadin (warfarin) and prevent serious bleeding.
Too HIGH!!! Typically, 2-3 is considered therapeutic range, depending upon why you are on coumadin (warfarin).
How long after begin off Coumadin (warfarin) can I start back enjoying vitamin K foods and red wine?
Question is unclear. If you're now off coumadin, (warfarin) you can have all the vitamin k foods you want. The Coumadin (warfarin) will wear off all the faster. If you're saying you're still taking coumadin, (warfarin) then eat and drink what you want in the manner customary for you and let your doctor adjust your Coumadin (warfarin) dose to be therapeutic on your usual diet.
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.
Mom has a Coumadin (warfarin) level of 8. Went ER she had a shot of vitamin k. When will she get into the safe zone? Can iron pills make her levels increase?
That's pretty high. Clearly her inr of 8 is pretty high. Vitamin k takes a few days to work but that would be the best way to treat unless she's having active bleeding. It should start to come down, but you'll need to follow pretty closely over the next few days. Iron would only serve to increase hemoglobin but that would also take a few days.
My doctor has cleared me to go off Coumadin (warfarin) after my prescription runs out. At what point may I resume alcohol snx vitamin K intake?
Now. Go ahead and enjoy yourself unless your physician has directed you otherwise.
K right after, wait 4. As soon as your prescription runs out you can take all the vit k and foods with k you want. Alcohol thins your blood and it takes 4-5 days for Coumadin (warfarin) to leave your system. Limit yourself to 2 drinks a day until a few days after stopping (not that it is ever wise to have much more than that!).
