Warfarin and advil

Common Questions and Answers about Warfarin and advil


Avatar n tn (was given this when I had a Brachial Plexus Injury for 5 days only) He told me that he rarely uses this med and if I cannot take other pain meds, I would have to resort to Advil which I said I would. When I was in the ER room with A-fib and pain some months ago, they wanted to give me Morphine. I said NO! Give me a shot of Torodol. They would not give me this. )-: I declined the Morphine and had nothing. Dotty what you went thru is so scary. I hope you are doing better now.
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 I called and she prescribed a muscle relaxer and hydrocodone for pain. I had told her that Tylenol and Advil weren't working. Well, neither the muscle relaxer nor the hydrocodone really did anything for pain...just knocked me out. I have iced, I have heated....NO RELIEF. I got my period (very lightly) last Tuesday, and voila! the pain was gone completely by Thursday. Oh I hate to know that this is what EVERY month will be like. Has anyone had any relief? What works?
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar m tn Most cough and cold medications are actually okay to take with Warfarin, as long as they don't contain any steroid or non-steroidal antiinflammatory (like Advil or Motrin). These also thin the blood, and can be a problem when combined with Warfarin. For a cough, try something like guaifenesin, like Robitussin Severe Congestion Liquagels or Mucinex. Avoid dextramethorphan, like Robitussin DM.
Avatar m tn com/products/nyquil/alcohol-free-liquid-medicine/ ********************************************************************************** It is safe to take ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) and acetaminophen together, since they are not in the same drug class. However, make sure you follow the direction on the drug label for each product and never take more than what is recommended. If your condition worsens or has not improved > 5 - 7 days, please consult your primary care provider.
Avatar m tn I have a very supportive wife and 3 wonderful kids and I am the main source of income for my family so it is imperative I do this in a way I can still function enough to work. The suboxone is stripping away all my drive and ambition and is starting to effect mine and my family's life .When I spoke to my Dr. about it his answer was to up my dose, told me that I should stay on suboxone and even tried putting me on MORE drugs. That's the last thing I want ....more drugs.
Avatar f tn I also take Norvasc, Inderal and a diuretic as well as a baby aspirin daily for a PFO and HBP, and migraines. Does anyone know why the Protonix would be prescribed? Thank you.
Avatar n tn After no sleep and lots coughing for three days, I took some cough medicine and Advil PM. The next morning I woke up early and my right had felt like it was asleep. Two hospitals later, a dissected corodid was found. The doctors believe the dissection was the result of high blood pressure, stress, cough medicine and Advil PM. I very fortunate to have limited stroke related damage. I’ve drop some weight and feel a lot better. I currently take lisinpopril, warfarin and nortriptyline.
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.
539209 tn?1225975863 In individuals who are deficient in G-6-PD, exposure to certain chemicals, drugs, or even some foods will result in the alteration of hemoglobin and breakdown of red blood cells. 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.
5045042 tn?1365893700 **** quai should not be combined with pharmaceutical drugs or other herbs and dietary supplements. It has yet to be proven whether or not the herb interferes with the effects of oral contraceptives or hormone replacement therapy. Due to anticoagulant (blood thinning) properties, **** quai may increase the risk of bleeding and should not be used at the same time as other blood thinning drugs including aspirin, warfarin (Coumadin) or heparin.
Avatar f tn It goes up and down all day and I feel very tired and weak with it. I am very pale. Sometimes during the day it goes to normal but not for long. When they found the hematoma they admitted me. I was in the hospital for a week. They had me on antibiotics through IV . I was also on them for a week after I got out. This was in Jan. I have been seeing my doctor every two weeks since the end of Nov. I had more blood work done last week.
Avatar n tn Blood-thinning medications -- Ginkgo has blood-thinning properties and therefore should not be used if you are taking anticoagulant (blood-thinning) medications, such as aspirin, clopidogrel (Plavix), dipyridamole (Persantine), heparin, ticlopidine (Ticlid), or warfarin (Coumadin). There has been bleeding in the brain reported when using a ginkgo product and ibuprofen (Advil), a non-steroidal antiinflammatory drug (NSAID).
Avatar n tn It went from being a mild annoyance, to severe burning and stabbing (my children have named it Chuckie for this reason) My doctor ordered several internal and abdominal ultrasounds, and all resulted in nothing being seen. I KNOW this pain is due to a problem with my right ovary, as each month when the pain starts, you can actually feel and see a lump in that area without prodding or pressing.
Avatar n tn Hiccops are actually a muscle spasm. Muscle spasms can be due to reduced magnesium. About 60% of magnesium in the body is found in bone and about 27% is in the muscles while the rest is in tissues and blood. If magnesium levels in the tissues and muscle gets low, the body will take it from bone. Magnesium is needed for hundreds of enzymatic functions including energy, nerve impulses and muscle contraction and relaxation.
Avatar n tn Hi I have a transverse and sagital sinus thrombosis which was treated with 6 months of Warfarin. I've just had a repeat MRI and MR scan and I'm waiting for my results. I don't think the results are good as I have been told that I must carry on Warfarin ? I haven't had a consultation yet to discuss the results, but I'm worried about what the means for me long term?
Avatar f tn even one dose of Advil/Ibuprofen; and many foods like licorice that would never occur to me as interacting with Coumadin. You might want to google interactions with Coumadin/Warfarin and see if there are any surprise interactions. Is he taking it himself or are you giving him the proper dose yourself? It is easy to get confused if the dose is always changing, and I think you said he sleeps a lot. Just a thought....
1981227 tn?1336332038 I explained to her I WAS stable and had the neurology reports to prove it, and that the med change was like changing from Advil to Motrin, but no go. Since my only health related concern was my MS, I took my chances and didn't buy insurance.
Avatar n tn Hello Ladies. I have been reading this site for several days and I kinow I am in the right place. I have a 8cm left ovarian tumor that has to come out. Please help with two things. 1. Should I wait until after the holidays are over? Tumor was discovered while looking for cause of multiple UTI's and chronic constpation. It looks like both problems can be caused from the tumor. Both started about a year ago. But should I wait? Is it worth it? Do these things grow quickly?
Avatar f tn Yes I can and I will go pick some up. The anxiety and depression scare me. Is there something to help that or purely the person's mental approach? How long until your body feels "normal" again? I feel like I am coming out of my skin and my legs ache. My legs don't seem to bother me until the evening. Thank you for your help! I don't have anyone to talk with that has been through this. Very thankful my husband found this site.
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.
429155 tn?1205676864 I went to my GP complaning of no sense of smell, saw a surgeon and surgery was recomended, I was given a prescription for Prednisone, a steroid, this gave me some sense of smell, and here's the but, I had the operation and still could not smell, so more Prednisone, well the upshot is that the steroids have caused my Osteo-Necrosis, this is when the heads of the long bones die, so have now had core decompression on one hip and the other totally replaced. Oxycontin.
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 n tn No fatigue. No pain. I will every once in a while be able to "feel something "there" after exercise if I am dehydrated. Glad you are going off warfarin. Now Google "warfarin" and "fatigue" "depression" and see if that doesn't tell you something! If nothing else, getting off the W will make you feel empowered, I bet. Just not having to go in for blood tests every week (they never could get my INR stable) made me feel like I got my life back.
Avatar n tn The following is information on warfarin and it's drug interactions. Coumadin (generic name Warfarin) is a anticoagulant (blood thinner) that is used for a variety of conditions. 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.
193245 tn?1189993322 But does this have anything to do with the way I metabolize drugs? Another thing, if I have a headache and take an Advil, it takes a couple hours to work. Others I know say that it works much more quickly for them. Does this suggest that I metabolize slowly or does it mean anything at all? I've always been hesitant to up my dose. Currently I'm on .5 mg bid. On two different occasions I took an extra .25 mg under the tongue to help out.
Avatar n tn Be careful of the over the count pain relievers such as advil, Tylanol and asprin. I did take them but only for very limited periods of time i.e. one dose. : Best of Luch Dear Nathan, WOW- what excellent advice you give to KIM, Thank you for this and for sharing with us all on the heart forum. I am very interested in this conversation, as my mother (64yrs) needs to decide between pig and plastic valves.

Avatar n tn We have already modified our diet and lifestyle and feel that apart from the issue of restenosis we probably have the heart disease under control. Does anyone know of any way to stop or reverse restenosis which has already begun in a stented artery? We would like to find some way to do this so as to avoid the trauma of another invasive angioplasty or bypass surgery.
