No, it would increase the clotting time.

My doc said acetaminophen (tylenol) only, and not too much of that, either.

Check with your Doctor, he will know what you can take, but don't take aleve or advil on warfarin.

You always need to check with your doctor before taking any medications. Tylenol is the only prn medication my doctors allow.
I have osteoarthritis pain in my hips and knees - I am on Celebrex which also affects my INR - because it is a once a day routine medication we have adjusted my warfarin dose to maintain my INR at safe level.

I'm taking 11 mg of warfarin daily. Take narcotics on occasion for the pain. But if I could take aleve I would not take anything else. Except my warfarrin. But I am told that I can bleed out without knowing.
