Coenzyme Q-10 might help the blood clot. By helping the blood clot, coenzyme Q-10 might decrease the effectiveness of warfarin (Coumadin).
Avatar n tn You need to avoid foods and drugs that are also blood thinners such as asprin, advil, NSAIDs, Aleve, Orudis, and other pain killers. Only take what your doctor suggests for you to take for pain and nothing else. You need to reduce Vitamin K because it interveres with the absorbtion of Coumadin. Don't eat leafy greens like broccoli, cabbage, brussel sprouts, or spinich, etc. Don't eat liver or other organ meats. Don't take vitamins or herbal supplements without telling your doctor.
Avatar n tn After the procedure I went home expecting the horrors of cramping and bleeding, but instead a very pleasant surprise - no bleeding, no cramping at all. Down time was maybe a day and a half and that was mainly because of the anesthesia. It has now been almost 3 years, my periods completely stopped, and I am elated! Please keep in mind that different people have different outcomes. I am glad to be able to post one of the most positive experiences of this procedure.
1139187 tn?1355710247 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.
959034 tn?1253675076 Indomethacin and piroxicam have been reported to have greater attenuating effects than other NSAIDs, and indomethacin effects may be significant in patients with eclampsia. MANAGEMENT: Patients receiving a beta-blocker who require prolonged (greater than 1 week) concomitant therapy with an NSAID should have blood pressure monitored more closely following initiation, discontinuation, or change of dosage of the NSAID. The interaction is not expected to occur with low doses (e.g.

Medications (NSAIDs). Aspirin and drugs such as ibuprofen and naproxen are called nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). About 70% of long-term users of these medications have some sign of gastrointestinal bleeding, although it is rarely significant enough to cause anemia.
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with BPH a year ago and was given Flomax. I had to go to Iceland and forgot my Flomax. My friend was taking a local product available over the counter called SAGAPRO made from a herb called Angelica. I used it and to my suprise...it worked. It even works better than Flomax! Do you know why this herb is so good for the prostate? Are their any side effects....I have noticed I am breathing better and also sleeping better. I have not used my inhaler since I have been on the sagapro.
Avatar n tn It certainly makes sense to use things that have a proven benifit to humans in a carefully controlled way and be able to lower the dose of warfarin as much as possible and avoid warfarin poisoning. I have been hospitolized from this. Not fun. The thing is to be informed and make changes slowly in a controlled way and then stay consistant. That means using the same product from the same company every day just like the warfarin is being used.
1236893 tn?1408490528 In addition, because aspirin is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), it should not be taken with other NSAIDs, such as ibuprofen or naproxen. And because it can thin the blood, avoid taking aspirin with anti-clotting medications, such as Coumadin (warfarin) or Plavix (clopidogrel), unless advised to do so by your doctor. The bottom line here is that if you’re healthy you shouldn’t take aspirin without a cardiovascular risk assessment by your doctor.
1285110 tn?1420150978 the x ray showed no sign of fracture so I was sent away and told to continue with iceing, and resting and to take pain killers. Now I am at the point, 11 days later, where I wake with little swelling, but by the evening I have a pocket of swelling under the ankle bone and to the rear of it - although there is no open wound if I was unable to see the injury I would swear it was an open wound as it has a soreness that you get with such an injury...
1770925 tn?1365622122 I am not a diabetic, but but doctors treat me as am, to the exclusion of treating my problems. It was my 5th neurologist that solved my problem. That was 14 years ago, now I find no help for recovery.. No real pain, but enough to wake me up every 2 hours night.
1008841 tn?1293602560 SSRIs and SNRIs, including Effexor, may increase the risk of bleeding events. Concomitant use of aspirin, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, warfarin, and other anti-coagulants may add to this risk. Case reports and epidemiological studies (case-control and cohort design) have demonstrated an association between use of drugs that interfere with serotonin reuptake and the occurrence of gastrointestinal bleeding.
1176841 tn?1330836060 They tried to MRI my knee but could not see through my metal due to the total knee replacement. Since I have a very low platelet count and on Warfarin I am only allowed to be an anti-inflammatory for 14 days no longer. I start this tomorrow to buy me some time to get into the ortho surgeons office. I don't know what will happen next. Can anyone tell me what is in store?
Avatar n tn I have been to about 30 doctors- including ENT's allergists, neurologists, chiropracters, opthamologists. psychologists, dentists and everything else u can think of. All CT scans, MRI of brain and blood work keep coming back clean and ok. Nothing I try seems to work. There was a period of time about 3 and a half years ago that the symptoms lifted for about 4 months and then it returned full force.

1088430 tn?1259163373 And, Feverfew should not be taken along with medications that thin the blood such as warfarin (heart medication), or Aspirin or NSAIDS unless your doctor has prescribed you Feverfew and knows you are taking such medications. In the case of Warfarin, if a doctor were to prescribe Feverfew I would still highly suggest consulting a second source such as another doctor (the prescribing doctor for the warfarin) or a pharmacist prior to starting the Feverfew if on a medication like Warfarin.

Avatar n tn and the first image the is brought up is , I'd say , 90 percent accurate. It seems to run perpindicular toward the middle of the penis, then it runs parralell to the head of my penis, in both directions, I thought the dorsal vein was deep. Perhaps its part of the lymphatic system?
Avatar f tn While no specific answer came up, I did learn that there is a very small percentage (0.01%) of people who are considered warfarin resistant, and this is due to a genetic abnormality. The other interesting thing that I learned is that there are some people who have varying INRs due to malaborption issues due to the interaction of oral anticoagulants with drugs and food.
Avatar m tn No, they said I had been in a-fib too long to risk an electro-conversion as I'm not on Warfarin. I have the option of starting Warfarin now and getting converted in 3 weeks if I'm still in a-fib by then. I also wonder if there's any point. Won't I just go back into a-fib the next day or whatever? I don't understand how I could go so quickly from total control with Sotalol to no control on any of the drugs tried in a few weeks.
Avatar f tn However, this should not be a problem for most of us who are not already taking prescription blood thinners like Coumadin (Warfarin) and the like. Cooking with fresh ginger and eating small amounts shouldn't be a problem at all, but large amounts of powdered ginger could cause GI bleeding. If you have critically low platelets, I would avoid it. Ditto with ginko.
3112530 tn?1434035633 Ibuprofen belongs to a whole category of pain medicines called nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or NSAIDs. NSAIDs also relieve the swelling and inflammation that can cause pain. NSAIDs include aspirin and naproxen sodium (aka Aleve) Other analgesics ignore the pain signal but muffle the bell. Acetaminophen, aka Tylenol, works in the brain and central nervous system to deaden pain, although researchers do not fully grasp how it works .
Avatar f tn i was told recently, fake it till i make it and i did,it helped i find i am faking it less and less. now how long does it take to feel good, everyone is different, lots of variables,enviroment, genetic predisposition to addiction etc.
Avatar n tn no all kidding aside, tell your doctor, you definately need to have pain management, i went through something very similar week 3.....and finally got it under control.....welcome to the site....and welcome to treatment central....
Avatar f tn I actually feel like I'm going crazy if that makes any sense at all....I have to try and function at work on these meds and with the pain and all I want to do is cry.....so Deedee, did you finally quit work then? Are you on Disability?
