Sorry I should have been more specific in my question.
What I wanted to know was could the fruits and foods mentioned in the article cause problems when using Warfarin if so would the be a warning on Warfarin packaging soon.
I was just wondering would we start seeing warnings on Warfarin not to use Gojo berries while taking Warfarin.
Just as some medication have warnings not use use grapefruit while using them.
For the record I have never be prescribed Warfarin by my doctor or another blood thing medicine or do I use any blood thinning medicine.
I did not think at any doctor or pharmacist would say people should stop using Warfarin or other prescription drugs and use fruit or plant instead.
To the best of my knowledge if a useful medical property was found in a fruit or plant, the active ingredient would be isolated have to go trough test for safety and efficacy. Then be synthesised and made in to a standardised medical formulation and patented.
It then would have to get approval for the regulatory bodies such a the fda etc.
before proceeding to drug trials and eventual if it passed all of the trials it to would be dispensed like any other prescribed medicine.
Is this web site any better?
What should I avoid while taking warfarin?
You should not take acetaminophen (Tylenol), aspirin, or NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) unless your doctor has told you to. NSAIDs include celecoxib (Celebrex), diclofenac (Voltaren), ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil), indomethacin, naproxen (Aleve, Naprosyn), piroxicam (Feldene), and others.These medicines may affect blood clotting and could cause serious bleeding in your stomach or intestines.
Avoid sudden changes in your diet. Vitamin K decreases the effects of warfarin. Large amounts of vitamin K are found in foods such as liver, broccoli, brussels sprouts, spinach, Swiss chard, coriander, collards, cabbage, and other green leafy vegetables. Do not change the amount of these foods in your diet without first talking to your doctor.
Avoid eating cranberries, drinking cranberry juice, or taking cranberry herbal products.
Avoid drinking alcohol, which can increase some of the side effects of this medication.
Avoid sports or activities that could result in a bruising or bleeding injury. Use extra caution to avoid cuts when brushing your teeth or shaving.
