Warfarin and red wine

Common Questions and Answers about Warfarin and red wine


1042487 tn?1275283499 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.
Avatar n tn Bananas, aged cheeses, red wine, pickled foods, aged meats, smoked meats. nuts, and many mores. Suggest you google tyramine and see. As a physician I have seen migraines, arrythmias and hypertensive crisis from eating too much tyramine containing foods in people who have low MAO levels. If you are in the majority and have normal MAO, then these foods may never bother you unless you pig out and eat too much and then you may have a headache or PVC.
Avatar m tn If I was drinking an occasional glass of wine and still had the virus, I wouldn't worry so much about the LDN, but I would take alpha lipoic acid before, after, and the morning after even the single occasional glass of wine or beer. That's because ALA is probably the most effective substance for protection of the liver tissue. The body makes ALA on its own - an endogenous substance - but Berkson has saved lives by treating acute toxic liver poisonous by poisonous mushrooms with ALA.
Avatar n tn She is now waiting to have a biopsy, to find the cause of the fluid, she has had about 3 litre drained off because she was in distress. warfarin had to be stopped for this so having to wait for levels to drop. She is very unwell and not eating but her stomach is still big think she may have fluid there too. when the fluid is drained it is the colour of red wine. Could this fluid be connected to the build up in her leg. Have you any idea what the cause may be.
Avatar f tn I have been having more symptoms though so I'm going for another ultrasound monday. I drank red wine, took garlic and vitamin e and baby aspirin as well as took naproxen sodium for the pain and it seems better, so maybe it was just a muscle spasm. I was told the average time to be on it for DVT is 3- 6months. I guess since yours is a more extensive clot it may take longer. It also depends on the cause of your clot. I hope yours dissolves and you can come off warfarin.
Avatar f tn I have been suffering severe anxiety due to a deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary emboli from the end of January. I am on warfarin tablets. My anxiety is worse after physical symptoms; such as pain and discomfort in both legs. Does anyone out there on warfarin have these or similar discomforts and how do you overcome the anxiety?
Avatar n tn The surgery was completely sucessful and i now take 3mg of warfarin daily to maintain an INR value between 2 and 3 (generally between 2.5 and 3.0) I have been considering preganancy and have been told to consider the risks to myself and to an unborn child in light of continuing with my warfarin or going on heparin (the haematologist has advised me against heparin due to the risk of clotting around my valve.
Avatar m tn In this light, I’d recommend having a glass of red wine no more than 2 or 3 times per week. Wine and other alcoholic beverages also cause triglyceride counts to climb. Oatmeal, oat bran, and other whole grain products can help with a small reduction, about 5 percent, in total cholesterol. I like Krill oil Just look that it has total Phospholipids 420, total MG per serving 300, at least 160 mg EPA and 90 mg DHA and 1 1/2 mg of Astaxanthin.
Avatar n tn yes, the medications help, but you have to search yourself what type of food inhence the rush even more. for me; orange, lemons, chocolate and red wine do it. try to see what you eat and if you get a rush after that particular food. this will reduce the frequency. but, just so you know, it will never go away, it will only delay appearance!
Avatar n tn is it possible that my heart rate might revert to normal rhythm on its own (before the ablation)? If so, under what circumstances might this happen? Also, is there a way that I could help it along (particular exercises, foods, etc.)?
Avatar f tn First doc ignored any problem and said come back when worst. I have gone back and now will be having a ultra scan. I am concerned as I am warfarin and my levels have been unstable for a few months high then very lower. i don't drink alot when I have wine its always half or quater and topped up with soda or water. When I was 18yrs I had liver problems and jaudance. having read up on the signs..
Avatar n tn I am limited somewhat to what I can take due to being on anticoagulants. I had a PE in 2006 after a miscarriage, and was diagnosed about a month ago with three different blood clotting disorders. (Am currently on Lovenox and will be switching back to warfarin soon.) Am presently trying 50MG Tramadol (one every six hours) to try and abort this current migraine, but it doesn't seem to help much. I generally do avoid what you've mentioned.
1299944 tn?1304796905 They say that my A-Fib is not curable now. I'm on warfarin,blood pressure medicine and simvastatin. And I'm only 58 yrs. old and still working.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed nearly a year ago and have in the last six months changed my diet to be as healthy as I can be, lots of fresh fruit (especially red fruits and blueberries) and raw veg, anything brown (e.g rice, pasta, bread, nuts) and lean low fat meat (less red meat). I do not follow any diet but just use common sense and have started exercising twice a week gong to gym and for a swim.
Avatar n tn Also-MSG,or food additives, red or blue dyes, fillers, and sodium benzoate-just a partial list of all the **** that is added to our food supply. I get all sorts of reactions from all of the above, including insomnia, itching, bad stomach, you name it. I don't know if you can call it an "allergy"-it is simply toxic stuff that is not supposed to be in our bodies.
Avatar f tn I'd had some really upsetting news and got myself drunk on red wine, tripped and hit my head on a wall in the house, ignored the pain and blanking out for a week cos I was scared of being told off at the hospital for drinking when on warfarin, and ended up with a bleed behind my left eye. I had emergency surgery to suck out the clot and ended up in hospital for 3 weeks whilst they tried to decide if it was safe enough to put me back on warfarin..that really taught me a lesson!!
1211201 tn?1329318473 I will see my cardiologist in 2 weeks to see if I keep taking those drugs or stop them, how ever I have read that avoiding caffeine, chocolates, red wine, sugar, and drink lots of water will help to avoid any future episode. Hope you and me wont have anything again.
Avatar f tn He's now 66 and doing pretty well although he's still on medication and doesn't drink red wine or caffeinated drinks. I don't think his afib has gotten worse, but he still has it. I think the main trick is to stay in normal sinus rhythm as much as possible because that prevents changes in the heart that will make afib even worse. It sounds like you're doing pretty well so far.
Avatar f tn I have to take medications daily for other health issues and I'm not a big drinker but I do enjoy having wine sometimes...I'm just afraid I'm unknowingly damaging my liver by living my "normal" life. Does HCV RNA ever plateau into a detectable rate? Is there a certain time window I have to wait to be truly sure?
221122 tn?1323014865 Here's what I find sets mine off. Full stomach. Some foods such as onions and red wine. Also, since I've been on a diuretic for years, I have to watch my potassium level like a hawk. Even in the low end of normal, I get the shakes, weakness and tons of skips. 1 out of 10 beats. Taking my potassium supplement with some gater aid reduces the skips within two or three hours. You would think I'd learn but sometimes when you get busy you forget to eat the right food.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn Use a soft toothbrush, avoid hazardous activities, carry Medi-Alert ID identifying drug useage and notify your doctor if you have any dark brown urine or red or tarry black stools.
Avatar f tn And what about flax, red clover, cohosh, and estrogenic drugs given to people that are also unmentioned? Environmental effects of food and environmental toxins are cumulative and synergistic, so it helps to go back in time to before petroleum and other toxins and drugs and see if you find any of these problems in large amounts in the people who ate the food the most. It's a broader perspective that's always been missing from the anti-soy crowd.
Avatar f tn A Mediterranean type of diet -with an occasional glass of red wine, lol!-seems to be the diet best for Alzheimer's prevention. Add coconut oil (virgin & organic), staying physically, socially and mentally active and you may have one of the best ways to prevent this disease.

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.
343765 tn?1202526132 No skips during the walk, I came home and decided to really take chances and had two cookies and a glass of wine. Here I sit hours later and no skips. Hopefully that bad episode is over. It was a really bad one. I hate those because it just sets me back as far as worrying over whether I'll be okay. For now, I am pvc free so maybe I'll grab a handfull of M&M's hehehe...

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?
Avatar n tn They had put me on Warfarin as well as a heart rhythm ...the SR stuff. I had a cardioversion done a month later and right away I could tell the difference between in and out of sinus and the calmness when in as well as how much easier it was to breath. I was in for around a week and one night I could feel it coming, and I was out. I was switched to Taxtia XT 300mg per day and had another cardioversion done, and that lasted maybe 2 weeks, and then back out again.
Avatar n tn I have had atrophy of the fingertips for about 4 months now and they are red and wrinkled and they dry easily and so I have sympathy for all of you that are suffering from it. My advise is not to accept any topical steroids even if recommended by doctors because they do cause skin atrophy.
