    If You Take Warfarin (Coumadin)

    Since the effects of this drug can be reversed with vitamin K, the important thing is to eat the same amount of foods that have K each week. That can be hard to keep track of, so many doctors will tell you to avoid them to make it simpler. Keep a list on your refrigerator as a reminder.

    Foods with a lot of vitamin K include:

    • Asparagus
    • Broccoli
    • Brussels sprouts
    • Cabbage
    • Collard, turnip, and mustard greens
    • Endive
    • Green onions
    • Kale
    • Lettuce
    • Parsley
    • Soybean oil
    • Soybeans
    • Spinach

    Avoid lots of cranberry juice or products with cranberries, too, because they can also interact with your medicine and make it easier for you to bleed.
