As long as you are cautious and take these medications exactly as prescribed, you should be fine.

Miss Daisy... Coumadin should not be a problem with most narcotics... just stay away from the ones that have aspirin or ibuprofen in them... like percodan as opposed to percocet has aspirin it in... percocet has acetaminophen in it. Vicoprofen has hydrocodone and ibuprofen... so I would stay away from that... but most of the rest have acetaminophen or nothing at all except the opiate... like oxymorphone and hydromorphone are straight opiates without anything else. Just make sure your doc prescribing the warfarin knows what you are taking and then pay attention to your INR's to make sure they are in the acceptable range that your doc want to keep it. I hop this helps...

I used oxycodone with my warfarin and I didn't notice anything. What is your mother experiencing?

You should not have any problem with the hydrocodone & oxycodone as long as it is combined with acetaminophen. Typically the prescription should read Oxycodone/APAP 5, 7.5, or 10mg. Normally the docs will tell you if the pain is less than 6 on a scale of 0-10 you should take the Hydrocodone, and 6 and above take the Oxycodone. Do you know what is causing the high blood pressure? As for your mother's doc, I would find a new doc, preferably a hematologist.
