Common Questions and Answers about Warfarin and magnesium

All symptoms have been taken care of by the combined use of magnesium oil and Angstrom Magnesium. Magnesium oil is a topical solution that is rubbed on the skin. Angstrom Magnesium is a liquid taken by mouth. They both are absorbed down to the cellular level, therefore no laxative effect happens and all symtpoms disappear. When a stressful situation arises, my symtpoms appear.
Taurine by itself is well-tolerated and reasonable to try, although it seems implausible to me how taurine both maximizes magnesium absorption AND has numerous beneficial biological effects of its own. 3. Avoid excessive mag citrate use (if you are having very loose bowel movement) since chronic laxative use can harm your GI tract. I hope this long-winded answer helps you!
when they did the study about aspirin it was floored because they used Bufferin and that contains magnesium and magnesium thins the blood
I just started the Fleconide and Warfarin three days ago. My question is I need to loose 45 pounds asap. I am doing very well eating 1000 Kcal per day with a small abount or carbs (under 25) and otherwise lots of green vegetables and fish (Salmon only once a week) , then some extra lean turkey. Really feel great with the diet. But I started moderate exercise as soon as I was released from the Hospital. I walk on a treadmill for 30 minutes at 3.
- Acenocumarol -similar with warfarin - Captopril - another synthetic anticoagulant - furosemid (in sulphone amides group) - diuretic - spironolactone (synthetic steroid) - another diuretic - aspacardin potasium aspatrate magnesium aspartate - for a better equilibrium of ions at the miocardial fiber. Also I'd like to know the proper diet in my case.
I live in Oz too and the waiting list for my endocrinologist is around two months. You can also ask to be on the last minute cancellation list for a possible earlier appointment. There is a Patient Travel Subsidy Scheme to help with the cost of travel and accommodation if you need to travel to see an endocrinologist. I had acute kidney failure and have thyroid issues both hyper and hypo symptoms. I had severe itching and anaemia as two of my many symptoms of kidney failure.
I am now taking 8mg of Atacand a day for blood pressure, Sotocor 80mg, a baby aspirin and magnesium aspartate dihydrate (1 pill of 550 mg - 37.4 mg of Mg ). The magnesium seems to help heart stability but taken in combination with calcium heart stability decreased significantly. I have been fit all my life and still am relatively fit certainly well above average for my age. I have run for about 40 years and still jog a little walk about 5 -10 kilometers a day and swim, kayak, etc.
My question I have two factors for having blood clots Prothrombin and Lupus Anticoagulant I was taking fish oil, garlic, nattokineese and a host of other supplements and still had clots. now i'm on warfarin for life and have to be very careful what I take as it can effect my INR I even had to find a vitamin with no Vitamin K. Have you any suggestions.
I was also hypokylemic (low potassium) and I started taking magnesium which helps in the absorption and retention of potassium. It worked wonders - I went from a level 2 of potassium to a 4.1 after months of taking tons of potassium!
Those clots can shot straight up through the carotid artery to the brain where they can occlude arteries and cause strokes. Or, they can increase back-pressure and cause rupture (bleeding) of a vessel that has been weakened by years of hypertension. I'm not trying to scare you. Only pointing out the importance of controlling A-fib and that there is a total picture that includes more than just tight cholesterol control.
Mine starts with flutter, like a thousand butterflies in my chest, then to very fast and irregular beats, and then very slow and soft, in fact so soft I can hardly feel it. Anyone have the same? I try to avoid all triggers that I know of, such as laying on left side, coffee, over eating or eating to fast. I take CO Q10, magnesium, aspirin and my Flecinaide. Any one have good experience Flecinaide? Thanks This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/253708'>A-Fib</a>.
Beta blockers kept me out of Afib and out of the hospital for 7 years. I am now have been on an anti-arrythmic and Warfarin. for the past year. I hope to get off of that soon. I think different meds work for different people. Afib is a whole different animal than the pvc's, pac's and tachycardia. I have those also, but they are non-sustained and not (for me) the emergency that Afib is.
Steve, that is a very interesting study on warfarin. Of course, viral titers, inflammation and fibrosis have been known not to correlate, but, like LDN, I wonder how many other drugs like warfarin are out there that, with off-label use, could help curb the pathologies of hep c. You might be correct that your use of warfarin has helped save your liver.
If the headaches are caused by migraines then trying Magnesium, riboflavin (vitamin B-2), and coenzyme Q10! could help! But being on coumadin (warfarin) then coq10 and Magnesium can cause an effect!!! You should talk to your doctor before taking anything!!!!
Presently doing further liver function tests, calcium/magnesium tests and inflammation. He is presently on warfarin and also has started Baclofen to see if they help his cramps. I have also started him on calcium and magnesium supplements today! Any idea to which area to look into this issue? e.g. possible names of diseases? Thank you for reading this question.
low-fat diet (gallstones) avoiding dark leafy greens (DVT and warfarin) trying to lose weight so managing calories. Problems with legs and fatigue, so haven't been exercising. When I'm feeling better I work out three times a week - but it's been a long time since I was able to do that.
With Coumadin, do not start or change the dosage of any drug, vitamin or herbal product without checking with your doctor or pharmacist. Warfarin intercats with many pprescription and non prescription drugs, vitamins and herbal products. The interaction with warfarin usually results in an increase or decrease in the blood thinning or anticoagulant effect. Your doctor or other health care professional should closely monitor you to prevent serious bleeding or clotting problems.
She was in hospital for about three months to be stabalized.At home now . three months.
Did you ever try Q10 and L-carnite together? Would suggest to have a blood test before you try to see if you are lacking any of this, otherwise it's pointless. I used to take megadoses of vitamins and minerals and it didn't change anything, still had arrhythmias.
Im 47 & have permanent af -on 14mg warfarin and bisoprolol. Had 2 dc cardioversions which lasted hours and a few days before ectopics with sinus followed by full af set in thereafter. Have slight LV hypokinesis. now AADs suggested sotalol/flecanide. Im concerned about proarrhythmias and toxicity. High Warfarin dose and resistance to remain in sinus suggests to me that Id need quite a high sotolol dose too.
I'm overweight, take a daily prescribed regimen of baby aspirin, multi-vitamin, vitamin B6, vitamin C, vitamin D, and 6mg warfarin. I'm a lymphoma cancer survivor (2 years beyond chemo), don't smoke, drink alcohol only occasionally in moderation and even less caffeine, exercise somewhat irregularly, had lots of ear aches as a child associated with bronchitis but because I'm 61 now I don't think my childhood ear aches have anything to do with it.
As for Magnesium... it works for the same reasons as the B12 what with the Mitochondrial dysfunction being a factor in migraines and Magnesium helping with energy metabolism and stuff. Magnesium is also sort of known in "alt. med" circles as being an anti-inflammatory and very calming. So, this could be a factor in why it helps migraines too. Another interesting thing... magnesium levels in our body drop prior to and during a migraine.
On a good note, I had a follow-up scan of my leg with the DVT and it had resolved itself, so I could quit the warfarin and now I can take Alleve when necessary for any pain!!! Just before Christmas my sinus allergies came back with a vengeance! I couldn't quit sneezing and blowing my nose each morning. I then thought that just maybe my back pain could have resulted from the generic Cytomel, as I had stopped taking it shortly before stopping the Zyrtec.
Thank you for your answer. We have heard alot about magnesium and he has been on asprin daily for years. He is 70 years old with blood work and blood pressure of a much younger man. When you take coumadin to help prevent a stroke then learn that taking it could also cause a stroke-that's kind of scary. My husband also started taking cod liver oil daily which we read keeps those arteries nice and slippery making it hard for clots to form. He also takes bunches of different vitamins.
I am now on warfarin {now at 2,4} having had the proper doses of heparin. I am now getting off and on leg cramps and finger stiffenings I have never had these cramps before. I suppose I should add that I am 87 but in excellent health. Are these usual complaints from this medication? or what could they be a result from? Anxious to hear.
The treatment for clots in the ventricle is warfarin. The clots usually become firm and do not embolize with time. If it is still soft clot, the warfarin will help to slowly reduce the size of it. There isn't much else that needs to be done now. I understand your concern about stroke. The longer you go on warfarin, the less likely you are to have a stroke from that source.
The good news I can offer, is I have been in and out of permanent AFib for 15 years and have been on Warfarin even when not known to be in AFib and I no blood clots have ever been detected. Some people have trouble with Warfarin, it takes a very regular diet to hold steady. 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.
Got my husband's blood work back on his magnesium and yes it was serum magnesium that was done. His result was 2.2 with normal being 1.6=2.6. Kind of confused though. If only 1% of magnesium is found in blood and 3% found in serum, why could you be more deficient with the one that shows 3% (serum). Maybe you can help clear it up. Might you also happen to know what the ratio is between potassium and magnesium? His potassium level (serum) is 4.5. Thank you for your help.
I have permanent AFib, take a BB, a CCB, an aspirin, Simvastatin, and Warfarin - my cardiologist and my primary care seem untroubled that I also take multivitamin/minerals and a fish oil too.
As for your theories, I have nothing to add or detract, but a safety belt is hopefully never needed, but I wear one anyway. I take both Warfarin and aspirin, but then I have the age strike against me and am in AFib full time.
