Take warfarin with food

Common Questions and Answers about Take warfarin with food


Avatar_m_tn or reduced dose. How does your stomach do on regular aspirin? Take with food may reduce irritation.
Avatar_m_tn The new research looks at how warfarin affects the progression of fibrosis in mice with chronic liver injury. Warfarin is already used to prevent and treat blood clots in people with artificial heart valves, deep vein thrombosis, and a host of other conditions. A previous study by the same researchers demonstrated that in Hepatitis C, scarring of the liver accelerates in those patients who are prone to form blood clots.
Avatar_m_tn 5 MG 24 hr patch once a day) B-12 (2000 MCG once a day) Should these meds be taken with food? How does coffee affect these meds? What is the best way to take each of these meds?
Avatar_m_tn heparin until Warfarin build up in blood with INR 2.5. This brings me to now. I'm still taking Warfarin. Recently, I've noticed an increase in upper chest discomfort during stationary bike exercises. The discomfort begins about 10 minutes into a warm up session. I slow down enough for the discomfort to go subside and keep efforts on the low side to avoid having that pain. Once into the cycling session, I can increase efforts, but can feel that level upper chest discomfort.
1465650_tn?1316234760 Once in the right range then I could continue with just the pills. Treatment would take 6 months, my warfarin sentence should be over end of this month. During all this the heart palpitations would continue and the trips to the hospital would also. One week after the DVT diagnosis (May 6th) I had an attack that took me to the main hospital, again the heart would settle but they ran a CT scan with contrast just incase the blood clot had moved to my lungs.
Avatar_n_tn ginger and glucosamine sulfate will affect coumadin (warfarin) I'm on warfarin and can't take ginger or glucosamine and a host of other supplements.
Avatar_f_tn However, if you vary significantly on some days, those days will have either too high to too low a coagulation result from your medication. I do very well with Warfarin, and I take a multi vitamin every day that in fact contains some "K", but I take the exact same amount every day and I try to have some salad or other "K" containing food each day to keep my intake near some regular (unmeasured) level. I take 5 mg of Warfarin every evening, before going to bed.
Avatar_m_tn These visits come with their co-pays and deductibles too! Not to mention that warfarin has significant risks, drug interactions, food restrictions etc. And overall: you have to think of the worse case senario of switching to warfarin having the warfarin be too strong and your wife getting a bleed of some kind. This could be in her GI track, brain etc. and can be very life-threatening and could cause huge hospital bills.
1796911_tn?1315608946 Gourmet for a few years now he lists the vitamin K on everything and has great vegan recipes. I also eat some fruits that thin the blood so I can take fewer doses of the rat poison (warfarin). I would rather thin my blood with food than drugs. If you would like a list of fruits that thin the blood just ask me. You have to be consistent with any food so as not to change your INR to much. Just make sure you speak to your doctor first.
Avatar_m_tn These options can be discussed with your personal physician, or in conjunction with a GI evaluation. Followup with your personal physician is essential.

612551_tn?1450025775 How are ya goin' mate? Good to see that you're still with us. I take atenalol and it makes me very tired and a bit more dopey than usual (wife claims), also upsets my stomach but it's a heck of a lot better than having those SVT's and has reduced the frequency and severity significantly. What are you s side affects? I take 1/2 25 mg tablet in the morning and sometimes if I have a busy or really stressful day, another 1/4 tab before bed.
Avatar_n_tn The foll are the medicines; Celol ,Naproxen, Please advice if i should take them.Also can i take Calcium supplement food as well?
Avatar_f_tn The bigger cost for being on an anticoagulant is getting the blood tests to be sure the level of medication is right. But given you can't take aspirin (did you take them with food?), there doesn't seem to be another choice. I do not know anything about Ginseng...but be careful with herbs, some can be dangerous.
Avatar_f_tn Alcohol interacts adversely with Warfarin and increases the INR. Coumadin /warfarin interacts with foods that contain Vitamin K. Vitamin K works against Coumadin /warfarin and makes it less effective. Please try to eat consistent amounts of Vitamin K. Green leafy vegetables such as spinach, broccoli, kale, collard greens, cabbage, and salad greens are some sources of Vitamin K, but there are many others.
Avatar_f_tn What medication and how long it will take to complete treatment. What are general precautions - food intakes etc. Cheers Irfan This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/294049'>Pregnancy and Stroke</a>.
Avatar_f_tn Long-term, low-dose treatment with warfarin may prevent clots, but it's not without risk. There's a risk of serious or even fatal bleeding — especially when warfarin is taken in high doses or for long periods of time...taking warfarin at a high dose for a longer period of time is only advised for individuals who are at a high risk of developing blood clots that could cause a heart attack, stroke or pulmonary embolism. There is a risk/benefit decision that would require professional judgement.
Avatar_f_tn Coumadin pre-operatively, as you state one considers the risks of hemorrhage or thromboembolism versus the benefit from the operation. When considering noncardiac surgery, these factors and the need to weigh the risk of hemorrhage against that of thromboembolism must analyzed on an individual patient basis. Certain procedures such as a bunion that are not procedure that threatens limb or life are easy analysis.
Avatar_f_tn I am not aware of any connection beyond the fact that eating will normally cause the HR to increase due to a need for more blood/oxygen by the stomach muscles. If your husband has any AFib periods I'd think it a good idea for him to take an aspirin a day to help mitigate clot formation. Aspirin is the first/lowest step in blood anti coagulation therapy. I have permanent AFib and so I take a blood "thinner", Warfarin, in addition to half aspirin with breakfast.
1042487_tn?1275283499 Policosanol, turmeric, I used to take can't take when on Warfarin also no vit. K so that leaves out just about all green vegetables. check out http://www.drgourmet.
Avatar_f_tn Fenugreek is not very safe in pregnancy when used in amounts greater than those in food. It might cause early contractions. Many medicines interact with Fenugreek and these include anti diabetic drugs, medications that slow blood clotting (Anticoagulant / Antiplatelet drugs), ibuprofen and warfarin. Takin alcohol when you are taking Tylenol can cause serious side effects that affect your liver. No reported interactions are there between peptobismol and alcohol.
Avatar_f_tn Aspirin us usually, I believe, used if the patient can tolerate, taken with food I think most of us can. Warfarin requires reglar blood coagulation tests, aspirin doesn't.
Avatar_f_tn The only thing you have to worry about is not taking Vitamin K especially because it causes blood clotting while on aggrenox. The other natural blood thinners include vitamin E, garlic, onions, and vitamin C because they also thin blood. That's why doctors tell you not to take these vitamins before an operation. My mother had a stroke about 5 months ago and we are considering opening the blood thinning aggrenox capsules and giving her half the dosages with applesause.
4121556_tn?1350432160 There is no particular time this happens, nor any particular food. Am on Omeparazol 20mgs, dail, ongoing. I take gaviscon when I get these attacks, and they subside after 20 minutes. Could they be related to the Vagus Nerve? I sometimes get AF without an acid attack. Any ideas or suggestions welcome, no medic seems to know.
Avatar_n_tn What i would like to know is it safe to take Vitamin K and Lysine as i would like to heal the bones asap. I read on the net that takng Vitamin K with Warfarin mite not be wise.I was given Warfarin injections while in Hospital but have been given 2X 75mg of asparin and 2x Diclofenac Sodium while recovering at home. Iam eating a balanced diet and iam a non smoker. I woul like any information on the best way to heal bones and muscle. Thanks Ian....
882102_tn?1240626011 Finally, my new Cardiologist wants me to take Warfarin but I don't want to. I am happy with baby aspirin but would rather take Genko, which is a blood thinner that I took for some years to reduce tinnitus in right ear caused by Menieres disease which in turn had been caused by eating a bad prawn. I got cured of the Menieres disease by accupuncture. Would Genko substitute for Warfarin or baby aspirin?
Avatar_f_tn I believe the clotting concern is specific to AFib, and to other atrial irregularities, generally not to ventricle misbehaving. None-the-less, if you are not on an anticoagulant and your stomach can take it, an aspirin a day with one of your small meals may provide some protection. Many people take aspirin just as a good heart practice. I do, but then I also take warfarin and suffer from AFib.

Avatar_m_tn I felt a tingling sensation in my thyroid that increased to burning when I got to a house with a black box labeled 'poison do not touch'. I see similar boxes advertised for mouse control. I have a goiter and hyperthyroid and take PTU. Returning to the same area in a few days I got the same sensation and still feel a slight sensation there 3 days later. There is a wide range of rodenticides from warfarin to fluorides to heavy metals that I read can affect the thyroid.
