Keep These Tips in Mind If You Take Coumadin

  1. Since the effects of Coumadin can be reversed with vitamin K, keep a list of foods high in this vitamin on your refrigerator. The most important thing is to eat the same amount of these foods each week, but not too much. That can be hard to keep track of, so many doctors will tell you to avoid them. They include:
    1. Asparagus
    2. Broccoli
    3. Brussels sprouts
    4. Cabbage
    5. Endive
    6. Green onions
    7. Kale
    8. Lettuce
    9. Parsley
    10. Soybean oil
    11. Soybeans
    12. Spinach
    13. Turnip, collard, and mustard greens
  2. Avoid cranberries, cranberry juice, or products containing cranberries because they can interact with Coumadin and increase bleeding.
