Hi ramseb01! Welcome to Drugs.com!
Warfarin is prescribed for some stroke patients. At the top of this page, please click on the letter "W" where it says "browse all medications". A list of meds will be displayed. Select Warfarin from this list to read more information.
Some MEDICINES MAY INTERACT with Warfarin. Tell your health care provider if you are taking any other medicines, especially any of the following:
Heparin or other anticoagulants, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) (eg, ibuprofen), salicylates (eg, aspirin), streptokinase, or urokinase because the risk of bleeding may be increased
Mifepristone because excessive bleeding may occur
Many prescription and nonprescription medicines (eg, used for infections, inflammation, aches and pains, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, seizures, mental or mood problems, diabetes, stomach or bowel problems, irregular heartbeat, birth control, hormone replacement, cancer, and others), multivitamin products, and herbal or dietary supplements (eg, herbal teas, coenzyme Q10, garlic, ginseng, ginkgo, St. John's wort) may interact with Warfarin, increasing the risk of serious side effects such as bleeding or blood clots
This may not be a complete list of all interactions that may occur. Ask your health care provider if Warfarin may interact with other medicines that you take. Check with your health care provider before you start, stop, or change the dose of any medicine.
There is also a support group that you may wish to join for Warfarin as well.
Take good care. All the best to you, ramseb01.
