1392107 tn?1280832470 Some medications for high blood pressure include captopril (Capoten), enalapril (Vasotec), losartan (Cozaar), valsartan (Diovan), diltiazem (Cardizem), Amlodipine (Norvasc), hydrochlorothiazide (HydroDiuril), furosemide (Lasix), and many others. • Warfarin (Coumadin) interacts with COENZYME Q-10 Warfarin (Coumadin) is used to slow blood clotting. 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 As a result our cardiologist put her on Metoprol 75 mg. Her blood pressure has returned to normal He also performed a stress test and echo on her. The echo showed that she has excess water around the heart and it is squeezing on the heart. He prescribed hydrochlorothiazide. My questions are: 1. Is this something serious? 2. Can this medicine help her control this? 3. Does she need to be taking this medicine for a long time? 4. How did this issue started to begin with?
Avatar m tn There are at least six reported cases of alterations in prothrombin time (a measurement of blood clotting ability) in patients taking both melatonin and warfarin. These cases have noted decreases in prothrombin time (PT), which would tend to decrease the effects of warfarin and increase the risk of blood clots. However, blood clots have not been noted in these patients.
Avatar n tn As with other drugs, warfarin can cause allergy, rash, itching and GI symptoms like diarrhea, nausea and vomiting. It can cause loss of hair, joint and muscle pain, swelling of hands and feet, shortness of breath etc. Bleeding into brain can cause stroke, and into lungs can also be serious. If you are on warfarin you will need to get INR test done regularly to avoid any mishaps. Take care!
Avatar m tn t know how warfarin is affecting your life style. I have been on warfarin for years and had no concerns about running and bike riding, and using power wood working tools. All of these activities puts one at an increased risk of a cut and bleeding, but I simply take the risk. On the other hand, I don't sky dive, or pick fights ....
Avatar n tn I have been on Coreg, Enapril and Hydrochlorothiazide, for the past three years. During this time my legs have started tingling and feet are so sensitive, I can hardly wear shoes. My legs feel cold all the time and pains in my toes when walking sometimes. My knees hurt really bad also. I have been reading about side effects of the Three medications I take, they all mention side effects of pain like the ones I have experienced.
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 n tn In my experience of eight years taking warfarin and also based on study of warfarin management techniques, I believe you can take any antibiotic that you need to take to get the job done, as long as you test your INR and adjust your warfarin dose accordingly. It helps if the doctor who prescribes the antibiotic is the same doctor who manages your warfarin.
Avatar f tn DOES ANYONE KNOW IF WARFARIN CAN LOWER YOUR BLOOD COUNT AND AND ALSO LOWER CALCIUM AND VITAMIN D LEVELS?
Avatar f tn All of a sudden food tastes extra salty w/ no added salt. I am on hydrochlorothiazide, but have been on this for 3 months and this hasn't hapened until recently. What could it be?
Avatar n tn The 25 or 12.5 is the amount of hydrochlorothiazide, a common diuretic used to eliminate water, that is added to the Avalide. So in this case, you are getting 300mg of irbesartan and 25 mg of hydrochlorothiazide. It's a duel treatment for hypertension and is very normal.
612551 tn?1450022175 CoQ-10 is frequently recommended for reducing side effects in patients taking statins ( like Lipitor) and I haven’t heard of anyone on warfarin having issues. I would recommend consulting your doctor first (obviously) and maybe refraining from COQ-10 unless you have some nasty symptoms that you absolutely can’t tolerate which COQ-10 has been shown to alleviate.
Avatar n tn Every morning I take atenolol 50 mg; spironolactone 25 mg; hydrochlorothiazide 25 mg; lispinopril 40 mg but just had a round of tachycardia. Observation for 23 hours and a stress test all turned out negative. We are planning a long car trip in the near future. Would a 50 mg tablet of atenolol be first aid, if tachycardia appeared in area where doctor was some distance away? That assumes that pressure techniques--bearing down as if bowel movement or massaging the neck.
Avatar m tn Joe developed a sizable hematoma which began to seep from the wound at a steady rate. He skipped one dose and took low doses for two additional days and resumed normal dosage for two days before we went to emergency. His INR was 1.7 that day. He had three holes in his incision and was seeping the old blood steadily. This led to a clean up surgery. He went off dose, doctor's order, for two days and was at a 1.7 when he went in for the surgery.
Avatar n tn She has been on warfarin and monitors it regularly. She also has past history endometriosis and has always had heavy periods and problems with her periods. She also has uterine fibroids that have been giving her problems, even more so since the warfarin. Between the uterine fibroids and the warfarin, her menses are extremely heavy. She is on iron because she tends to be anemic around her period. Her periods are so heavy that she can go through 4-6 large pads an hour, sometimes more.

Avatar f tn Seven months ago I had a pulmonary embolism and I am told this may have been the second one.I am taking 7 mg of warfarin a day and my INR is 2.5.I had a liver transplant 10 months ago,and was told my vascular system was not great.Given my overall situation I am concerned about heart attacks and strokes.Do you think I should be taking 75mg of aspirin a day as well as the warfarin?Thanks.
Avatar m tn I believe it could be a FATAL mistake if you stopped taking the warfarin. Mechanical valves will clot without warfarin and this could cause a heart attack, stroke or heart failure and could cause you to have to have another open heart surgery. PLEASE ,PLEASE talk to your doctor about any changes in the warfarin.
Avatar f tn Sometimes aspirin is used in place of the Plavix, and the patient will be on aspirin and warfarin. That type of combo regimen is used when the doctor doesn't think that one drug alone is enough to do the job, and one drug obviously wasn't enough in your case. It seems that your Plavix and warfarin regimen is working, so I'll join you in giving thanks for that.
