I TAKE WARFARIN FOR ATRIAL FIBRILLATIONS. I ALSO HAVE VERY SEVERE ARTHRITS AND FIBROMYALGIA....I AM IN CONSTANT PAIN WITH NO LETUP. I TAKE ULTRAM AND TYLENOL, BUT TO NO AVAIL.....I AM STILL ALWAYS IN AGONY. TO THE POINT THAT I CANNOT FUNCTION ON A DAILY BASIS, NOR WALK WELL. HOWEVER MEDICATIONS LIKE IBUPROFEN AND NAPROSEN, ESPECIALLY THE NAPROSEN WORK VERY WELL FOR ME. BUT THEY CONFLICT WITH THE WARFARIN. WHAT OPTIONS ARE THERE FOR ME?????
My toothache has been keeping me up for days. I searched the net and found out that I shouldn't be taking either Ibuprofen or Mefenamic acid because of "an increased risk of bleeding in the gut" or something like that. :( Is there anything I can take? My tooth is killing me. *Please don't suggest going to the dentist. I'm waiting for another 2 weeks. By then, my doc will probably take me off Coumadin.
Common reasons for coumadin use are in atrial fibrillation to reduce the risk of stroke, in persons with clotting disorders, in persons with mechanical heart valves, and sometimes in people with severe heart failure. The usual dosage is somewhere between 1 and 15 mg a day. Potential side effects include bleeding, hair loss, nausea, vomiting, stomach cramps, diarrhea and leukopenia (low blood cell count).

I have had a mechanical valve put in to replace my leaking bicuspid aortic valve. First Warfarin is the same as Coumadin and you do have to limit your consumption of alcohol. Lucky for me I didn't drink anyway so it didn't affect me. But I know of others who can only have a couple of beers before it starts getting to them. When before they just drank all they wanted. To answer your question about the valve and how noisy it is. Let me tell you it can be noisy.
I should mention all the medicines I was on since this happened were heperin, then warfarin and acetezolamide, and niacian...also tylenol or Ibuprofin. The acetezolamide, I think, affected my memory. I felt much better after I was taken off of it. I think the dose was difinitely too high...even the niacin. I had to eventually talk to the doctors about quitting these. Now here's my question? I'm scheduled for a hysterectomy in Dec.
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.
I am concerned that a friend is doing herself harm by taking drugs that may not be compatable. She was prescribed coumadin and is also taking Zanax. Don't these two drugs counteract each other?
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. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
I drink no caffeine, take no prescriptions meds and occasion tylenol. I exercise regularly. I saw a GP who decide I had fluid on my ear, round of antibotics later, I had no relief. The GP then proceed with a shot of steriods, no relief. I then decided to see an ENT, went through the MRI process of checking for tumors, etc. He found nothing. I have not been back to this particular ENT as he offered me an antidepressant (HELLO-ITS MY EAR-IM QUITE HAPPY).
Since she is high risk I would say that she must see a doctor as soon as she can so she can ask them those questions and get the swelling under control. Tell her to put her feet up and it is safe to take Tylenol when pregnant....if it wont counteract with what she's already taking.
In light of the fact that I am currently UND and have no virus, the reversal of fatty liver and less necrosis and less HCC all sounds very appealing, not to mention any reduction in IR would mean ones own Interferon response would be better post tx. and this alone may increase ones chances of an SVR even if begun at the end of an SOC regime. Perhaps now, more than any other time it could help insure one will recognize any lingering HCV and seek and destroy as designed.
If you are on warfarin and developed a hematoma, I suggest you get prothrombin time and INR done to see if you need to reduce the dose. Maybe the bleeding due to blood thinner caused the hematoma. Hematoma do not need antibiotics unless there is an infection—which is possible in painful hematomas. They usually disappear on their own. If they are painful, it could also be due to tension from repeated bleed. Rest, ice, elevation and anti-inflammatory drugs should help.
I also take aspirin and warfarin daily, and I get botox.
And, how long will this take (approximately). I am in pain and am taking high dose Tylenol and can't take that forever. I do have tramadol but don't know if that is easier on the liver or not. I also don't want to get on that too much as I was on it before and went through withdrawal from it. I want to get mobilized and walking as soon as I can. Right now the pain is too high in the leg and knee to walk. But if the fluid goes out of the leg and knee from the clot then the pain will go down.
Is there anthony you can suggest to lessen the pain? I am fearful of Tylenol and I am not going to risk more blood thinning with aspirin or ibuprofen? Any suggestion would be appreciated.
Prosthetic Valves and INR--Avoiding Headaches posted by J.D. on January 25, 1999 at 17:28:41: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Dear J.D., I have never heard of a link between INR levels and headaches. The risk of too low of an INR is blood clots, strokes, and thrombosed valve. Therefore I would not try to base therapy on whether she has a headache or not.
This bigeminy and trigeminy always occurs in the evening, sometime around 7 or 8 as I'm settling down from dinner and a trip to the gym. As I let my mind and body relax, the PVCs get more frequent and eventually as I lay down to get to sleep the PVCs occur at nearly every other beat. Lately, I haven't been able to take this at night, so I will jump out of bed and furiously pump out about 50 push-ups without stopping. This gets my heart rate up quite a bit, maybe around 80 or 90 bpm.
I seem to be one who doesn't bruise easily. I take 5 mg warfarin, 81 mg aspirin and 1 capsule of fish oil (three capsules are recommended by the supplier) and I have not sign of bruising. I can't take any high dose aspirin because of the warfarin, luckily I don't suffer from much pain, anywhere. You didn't mention what dose level of aspirin you were taking. The maximum?
I see senior citizens treating chronic pain with otc pain meds like tylenol extra strength.Most just can't handle opiates and many are taking warfarin and can't even take ibuprofen. I don't believe that their arthritic pains are any less than a young person's.They just don't have the rebound pain that opiates cause.They also do not have to do as many physical things as a young working person. However very few take opiates and tylenol extra strength seems to do the job.
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.
One of the best pain relievers for dental pain is ibuprofen and tylenol extra strength can be added if not enough.There is another antiinflammatory called toradol that works quite well.none of these are opiates and can be used in the future if you are not allergic to aspirin or have ulcers or are take warfarin.
No, Tylenol is not aspirin, while it does have pain and fever reduction benefits just as does aspirin, it does not reduce swelling or affect the blood cells, as aspirin does. It is a given that aspirin is a heart risk reducer. It will not address AFib, nor will Tylenol, but it will help reduce the chance of clot formation, the main reason to take it if you are having AFib. I'd go ahead and take the aspirin, just forget about the Tylenol, assuming you took no more than the prescribed limit.
Prior to surgery I was on lyrica,mobic and tylenol prn for fibromyalgia and chronic joint pain. After the surgery I developed blood clots in my lungs and was placed on warfarin and taken off mobic.My primary doctor sent me to pain management doctor for relief of pain for my chronic problems and the ones caused by surgery. Last month I missed appointment with my pain doctor due to car problems called to reschedule appointment that morning and they did so.
She gave me that because I was taking way too many Tylenol and it was effecting my liver. I am limited to certain meds because I take Warfarin. About 6 years ago I developed a dvt in my right leg that broke off and I got mult. pulm. emoblisms in both lungs. (forgot to mention that). Almost died. She and I both want to ultimately get me off the Lortab....but to be honest....it doesn't do much and I don't even get drowsy on it. It takes the edge off my pain sometimes...
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.
Well I've taken both, probably more than anyone every should at one time, trying to ease some of the pain. I've used Tylenol 3's, percocet, and numerous other prescription pain killers, to no avail. The pain numbs a bit, but is always there. Can anyone tell me what the cause of this could be, and if there is help to be had.
Now its nearly 2 weeks and I have a little nausea but the thing that is driving me totally insane now is the restlessness in my legs and the pain in my back. I spend all night tossing and turning and trying to get comfortable and then I get so angry that I can't get to sleep. It is getting a little easier. I think I had really high expectations, I think I was expecting to be over this a lot quicker.
I am on paxil and my doctor told me I could take a decongestant because I have fluid in both my ears. So last night I took tylenol cold and sinus as directed. Within an hour I was sprawled out on the bathroom tiles hugging the toilet bowl. I felt dizzy, fuzzy, high as a kite! I couldn't focus on anything! I went to bed and slept it off and awoke at 3am wide awake and it is now 8:30am.
He was reluctant to give me anything more than Tylenol (must think all us heppers are old junkies and druggies) *******, oops sorry, anyway, I finally went to my family doc and he gave me the stronger medicine. But I suffered for weeks, and used up all my & my husbands old pain pills from surgeries, toothaches, back pain, etc! Keep after your doc, you shouldnt have to suffer PAIN, the headache is a common side of treatment, and like other symptoms they come and go. Much luck to you!!
