I drank them as part of my normal diet, before being put on warfarin last week. I have checked the ingredients and none appear as having a high amount of vitamin K. I talked to my pharmasist, and she was not sure but that as long as I didn't drink large quantities it was ok.
The main thing to remember when taking Coumadin or warfarin is that consistency with regards to Vitamin K containing foods is key. When initiating warfarin they will test your blood frequently and chage your doses accordingly. To become regulated you need to consume consistent amounts of Vitamin K containing foods. If you are going to eat Vitamin K containing foods you must eat them consistently and the drug can be adjusted around it. the trouble comes in when you consume a large amount of Vitamin K containing foods which causes your INR to drop then suddenly you stop eating Vitamin K containing foods and you are taking a higher amount of warfarin to compensate and now that it is not there, your INR will shoot off the charts. I'm going to provide you a link for very good info on Vitamin K containing foods and how much they contain so you can regulate. If you choose to drink this juice, be sure you drink the same amount each day and your warfarin can be regulated around it.
