Generally from what I've read you want to stay away from CoQ10 while taking coumadin. CoQ10's effect on the blood while on coumadin are similar to vitamin K's effects. I have read they have procoagulant effects on the blood. As for calcium, I drink and eat lots of dairy stuff. I also take a multivitamin and eat foods containing lots of vitamins and minerals (e.g. breakfast cereals, protein bars). This doesn't seem to effect my INR.
