... pricey so before I purchase it, I'm wondering if anyone can offer feedback on it. It seems all womens vitamins have K but senior vitamins do not. I'm 50 and I've been on warfarin since 2008. Thanks!
Warfarin - I am researching vitamins without K and came across one called Clotamin. It seems a bit?

Thank you everyone. This site is great. I once subscribed to the "Vitamin K is an absolute no" belief. I am now finding, and you all confirmed it, that K is OK as long as it's consistent.
I found a store brand multi w/o K. I got them 2 for one so that was at least 1/2 of Clotamin sells for. I think I'll save my K intake for salads & veggies.
My blood specialist told me to take any Prenatal Vitamin as None of them have Vitamin K in them. I have been on them for years.
You can buy the Generic or Store brand Prenatal Vitamins really cheap.
I too have been on warfarin since '08. When I had the same problem, I asked my doc about it, at the VA, and she said not to waste money on the expensive stuff. Warfarin regulates your INR according to the average level of K in your system. You're absolutely not supposed to eliminate K from your diet. You need it. What you're supposed to try to do is consume about the same amount daily, which will balance against the warfarin.
For myself, I eat a lot of the same things daily, to keep a stable amount of K. If you are better at organizing your menu, you can get a lot of variety. I bought a book a few years ago that helps a lot. I won't give the exact title, so people won't think I'm trying to sell something. Just Google 'coumadin cookbook'.
Remember, your doc is full of info. Good luck.
