Warafin clopidogrel aspirin given Hospital patient 89yrs has COPD stroke and heart attack will need limit Vegetables high chance of bleed? Correct?
Yes . We have to weigh the risk and benefit. It seems like the risk of recurrrnt stroke is high here . Suggest to stop Aspirin . This definitely needs a consultant for decision making.
Correct. Vegetables such as kale, spinach, turnip greens, broccoli, parsley, collard greens, Brussels sprouts and chard should not be eaten in large amounts due to their high content of vitamin K – a nutrient that can interfere with the effectiveness of your blood-thinning medication. Alcohol and cranberry juice should be avoided also. Good luck.
HealthTap Prime. It's a complicated case & discussing it will take more than 400 characters, so use HealthTap Prime to answer all your questions. In general, "leafy green" vegetables interact with warfarin, making it ineffective. Being on Aspirin & Plavix as well (3 blood thinners) will put you at increased risk for bleeding. It's manageable if you tell your doctors & know what to do. Heart attack could be worse.
