Is watermelon ok to if on Coumadin
My Doc who is also managing my coumadin prescribed it for lower back pain its ok to take but need to check INR at least weekly to see the effects and adjust coumadin prescription as needed. You should of course check with your own Doc as every patient is different especially when it comes to Coumadin (Warfarin)
Please contact your physician, "Coumadin Clinic" nurse, or other medical professional to let them know that you've consumed an extra dose of Coumadin. Only they will be able to properly assist you. Since Coumadin (warfarin) inhibits blood coagulation, taking an extra dose can significantly predispose to bleeding. Whether the double dose is of any concern depends upon things like your normal Coumadin dose, recent history of antibiotic use, diet and intake of vitamin K, etc.
