Common Questions and Answers about Warfarin side effects alcohol


Avatar n tn I was put on Warfarin (Coumadin) but was not given any warning about alcohol and at least on 2 occasions drank quite heavily (about 5 or 6 glasses of wine in one evening). I have had a series of bodily changes including increased veins on my nose face and on the palms of my hand. Upon returning to the States, I consulted with a doctor who suggested that I get off coumadin given that my clots were in superficial veins. However, two days following my getting off coumadin, (1.
Avatar m tn What **side effects** can this medication cause? Co-trimoxazole may cause side effects.
5268376 tn?1406183312 I looked at Zithromax side effects, they vary by the dosage, single or multiple doses, doses in combination with another drug, and are listed as pre-marketing trials and post-marketing reports. Rhythm issues were reported less than 1% of the time in pre-marketing trials, and also in post-marketing reports. Post marketing reports are apparently voluntary and often include things clearly not related to the drug.
Avatar f tn it is not a really big deal. Very common, lots of data available, fairly few side effects... There are other meds which you don't go into so lightly. Flecainide, sotolal, tikosyn, amiodarone... When I see some of these on my pt list of meds, it screams there is a problem- that simpler solutions couldn't fix. If you haven't tried the simpler ones yet, it is definitely a better place to start.
Avatar n tn Has anyone experienced any bad side effects from the hcg shots? I am administering them myself and just want to know what to look out for.
Avatar n tn He should also ask for some of the many handouts that are available about the use of warfarin, its side effects and drug interaction. It is also important to remind any physician that may be involved in your boyfriend's car that he is on warfarin before he is prescribed any new medications. If any of you have any other questions, or you would like to have one of our congenital cardiologist evaluate your boyfriend please feel free to call 1-800-CCF-CARE for an appointment.
Avatar n tn I have had an EKG to monitor heart activity and it read normal. Should these side-effects be a cause for concern besides from being discomforting? Thanks.
Avatar n tn When I ask about the side effects of long term use of the drug, my physician tells me that many people live long lives when taking it regularly, but does not directly answer the question. Can you give any more detail about specific side effects of long term warfarin use? I am also interested in any statistics on life expectancies etc of patients my age who may have undergone the same procedure. Many thanks for taking the time to answer these question.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar m tn Avoid over use of salads and green-leafy vegetables, since they counteract the effects of Warfarin. Seek the company of positive people and always see the lighter side to things; learn the capacity of laughing at yourself, not taking yourself too seriously. Religion and Spirituality help us to cope with such serious problems, and to develop a philosophy of life, which will definitely help you to overcome the negativity which leads you to anger or violence.
Avatar n tn However, I ama bit confused about the risks to a baby in relation to the effects of warfarin. It has been suggested that warfarin pregancies can be managed with no more risk to a baby than in a normal preganacy, is this the case? I would ask for your views? Perhaps it would be better to adopt?
Avatar n tn 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). The half life (amount of time for half the drug to be cleared from the body is 42 hours but varies widely depending on the individual).

Avatar m tn I take medications for control my (ventricle) heart rate and to protect against clots (warfarin). Other than the medicine side effects and the effects of old age I feel pretty good most of the time.
Avatar n tn Tell your doctor of any over-the-counter or prescription medication you may take, including: warfarin, cyclosporine, erythromycin, gemfibrozil, cholestyramine, niacin azole antifungal drugs (e.g., itraconazole), clarithromycin, nefazodone, diltiazem, verapamil, protease inhibitors (e.g., indinavir). Do not eat grapefruit or drink grapefruit juice unless your doctor instructs you otherwise. Do not start or stop any medicine without doctor or pharmacist approval.
1545481 tn?1325163686 b) Take medication to prevent this from ever happening again, medicine obviously would carry side effects. c) Ablation. I explained if i did nothing now and started boxing and running again and this re occurred,would happen then? The consultant made me do a treadmill test 5 m,p,h on an 2 % incline for 14 mins. He said your blood pressure is fine, also there is no abnormality showing in the heart rythm. I said i run at 10 m.p.h for 18 mins, i think abnormality would be more evident then.
Avatar m tn thx again!! i just heard that powerful drugs could delay seroconversion,,and based from my experience this drug has some nasty side effects. i just though this would be one of those "powerful drugs"that could prolong my window period. i just needed reassurance from people around here. so my 85 days would be conclusive right?
Avatar f tn Also tell them if you smoke, drink alcohol, or use illegal drugs. Some items may interact with your medicine. What side effects may I notice from receiving this medicine?
Avatar n tn If you have had heart valve replacement coumadin may be the only medical protocol practicable, however coumadin is overprescribed and because of the side effects and the restrictions on diet, decreases the pleasure in life, as well as making you susceptable to bleeding out in the brain after a slight fall or bump that would otherwise cause no harmful effects.
Avatar n tn Be careful what you take alongside Paxil (or any other SSRI, or MAOIs etc). I've divided this up into paragraphs so you can see the decongestant reference, and the reference to cough and cold OTC remedies: http://www.talkingdoc.com/medication/paxil.htm "...
1285110 tn?1420150978 The main reasons for AF in a younger person is underlying heart condition (ruled out) thyroid problems (ruled out) I dont drink alcohol and have never had drugs (ruled out) I dont drink tea and coffee or coke (ruled out) stress can contribute (RULED IN) but normally at my age, the AF would apparently correct itself after a couple of hours. So they want to do surgical cardioversion but an X ray and echo showed my upper heart chambers are filled with pooled blood....
Avatar n tn There are things to do. Medication is one that works fairly well with most patients--but with side effects. Ablation is another. There are very slight risks and the success rate is upwards of 80%.
959034 tn?1253675076 The mechanism may be related to induction of metabolism. The risk of CNS-depressant side effects, such as sedation and apathy, may be increased with this combination. MANAGEMENT: If these drugs must be used together, observation for clinical and laboratory evidence of altered clonazepam effect is recommended.
Avatar f tn I am a 31yr old female who has a mechanical mitral valve. I am taking warfarin daily and will be on anticoagulants for life. I was born with a hole in my heart which was patched when I was 4yrs old but then a hole developed on my MV which was repaired when I was 21yrs old. I then developed endocarditus when I was 27yrs and old and in 2004 had MVR surgery in the UK. I am fairly fit and regularly exercise although I am a little overweight for my height (according to the charts).
219241 tn?1413541365 I have very serious sensitivities to many drugs and would like to know if anyone is using this drug and what, if any, side effects (even mild) you may be experiencing. Forearmed is forewarned so I want to find out from as many people if it works for you or not and the side effects. Cheers!
Avatar m tn You must be so proud of yourself for trying to cutback the Flecainide. Most of us simply take side effects as part of the deal and you tried. Wow! The thing is now you don't have to wonder and you got peace of mind. I too have that drugged feeling while on Rhythmol and recently Flecainide. My daily exercise has been limited as I have so many side effects from this drug. In the medical world this is known as paying the price for maintaining sinus rhythm.
