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:
- Brussels sprouts
- Collard, turnip, and mustard greens
- Green onions
- Soybean oil
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.
