I am celiac and lactose-intolerant. I am having heart valve replacement soon and am recommended to have a mechanical replacement. This means I need to be on Warfarin or Coumadin for life. Are there any sources of Warfarin that are certified gluten and coumadin free?
Is there any source for a lactose-free gluten-free warfarin or coumadin?

Sorry - the last sentence should have read
"Are there any sources of Warfarin that are certified gluten and lactose free?"
Another question might be - are there any Celiacs or lactose-intolerant people currently taking Warfarin/Coumadin without any issues? If so which name brand.
I cannot find anything stating that there is lactose or gluten in warfarin - the only things seen is that those diets won't cause a problem.
One place under Just answer stated that warfin is gluten and lactose free - that was posted 2 years ago.
I am lactose intolerant and have been on warfarin since 2009 and not had a problem.
