Warfarin More Likely to Cause Brain Bleeding
The popular blood-thinning medicine warfarin, commonly known by the name Coumadin, could increase the risk of severe bleeding in the skull. A new study found that though scientists have long known that the medication slightly increased the risk of bleeding in the brain, the risk may be much higher than known before. In the study, researchers looked at data from from almost 32,000 U.S. veterans, aged 75 and older. Of those examined who had a heart condition and were taking warfarin, over 30% of experienced cranial bleeding. The researchers believe more study is necessary to determine how to balance the benefits of the medication with the higher risks it presents. http://www.upi.com/Health_News/2016/03/09/Brain-bleed-risk-from-warfarin-may-be-higher-than-thought/8131457553581/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Does Warfarin Causes Heart Flutters (Coumadin) DTV Blood Clots
My experience with warfarin has been horrible, it has caused more harm than good. I have had 4 blood clots (DVTs) and every time I was on warfarin it was the worse experience I have ever had. It started with me having a lot of flutters. My heart felt like it was fluttering every few minutes. My heart would flutter for 30 seconds and other times over a minute nonstop. I felt horrible when taking warfarin and I wanted to share my experience and how I helped another person that had the same problems. This medication almost killed me; it drove me crazy with heart palpations and flutters that wouldn't go away!

Serious Bleed After Being Prescribed Coumadin - Is it the Doctor's Fault? Ohio Lawyer Stuart Scott
Serious Bleed After Being Prescribed Coumadin - Is it the Doctor's Fault? Ohio Lawyer Stuart Scott http://www.spanglaw.com (877) 696-3303 Cleveland personal injury attorney Stuart Scott discusses how one prescription drug may be causing more injury than harm in many patients. Blood thinner Coumadin is prescribed to help thin a patient's blood hopefully preventing blood clots. Blood clots can lead to very serious medical issues such as strokes and heart attack. There are other blood thinner medications on the market and every drug has side effects. However, there are numerous reports in which patients are having serious adverse effects to the drug Coumadin. Some patients are experiencing bleeding events caused by the drug. These sometimes uncontrollable bleeding events can be devastating and very life-threatening. This very serious condition can be elevated even further as Coumadin has some serious issues when it comes to dosage sizes. You see, there's no actual recommended dose for every patient. The doctor and patient have to work together to meet the perfect dosage right for their body. As you can imagine, this can be disastrous to you as a patient especially within the first couple doses as you may be subject to an overdose. You should be aware of your rights as a patient and how you can seek compensation if you've been injured by the prescription drug Coumadin. To learn more about prescription drug law, I encourage you to watch the video above and to explore our educational website at http://www.spanglaw.com.

Warfarin: Information About Warfarin | Warfarin Interactions | Warfarin Side Effects (2018) Coumadin
Coumadin: Information About Coumadin For Patients | Coumadin Interactions | Coumadin Side Effects | Warfarin Patient Information | Warfarin Food Drug Interactions Hey guys! This weeks video is a short guide on warfarin also known as (coumadin). I see many patients on warfarin everyday and they are very knowledgable about their medicine, which is fantastic! But here's some information about warfarin, how it works, international normalised ratio (INR) and interactions which you may find useful. WHAT IS WARFARIN: Warfarin is the main oral anticoagulant used in the UK. An anticoagulant is a medicine that prevents blood clotting. Clotting (thickening) is a complex process involving a number of substances called clotting factors. Clotting factors are produced by the liver and help control bleeding. They work with cells that trigger the clotting process (platelets) to ensure blood clots effectively. Warfarin blocks one of the enzymes (proteins) that uses vitamin K to produce clotting factors. This disrupts the clotting process, making it take longer for the blood to clot. WHEN IS WARFARIN PRESCRIBED: Anticoagulant medicines, such as warfarin, are often prescribed for people who've had a condition caused by a blood clot or have an increased risk of developing harmful blood clots. TAKING WARFARIN: It's very important that you take warfarin exactly as directed. Don't increase your prescribed dose unless the doctor in charge of your care advises you to. Warfarin is taken once a day, usually in the evening. It's important to take your dose at the same time each day, before, during or after a meal. The aim of warfarin therapy is to decrease the blood's tendency to clot, but not stop it clotting completely. This means the dose of warfarin you're taking must be carefully monitored and, if necessary, adjusted. You'll have regular blood tests at your GP surgery or local anticoagulant clinic to make sure your dose is correct. The INR is a measure of how long it takes your blood to clot. When you start taking warfarin, you may be given a yellow booklet about anticoagulants, which explains your treatment. INTERACTIONS WITH WARFARIN Medicines Warfarin can interact with many other medicines, herbal medicines and supplements. Always ask your pharmacist, GP or staff at your anticoagulant clinic before you take them as they may interact with your warfarin. Also visit https://bnf.nice.org.uk/interaction/warfarin.html to check medication interactions. Foods and drink Foods containing large amounts of vitamin K include: • Green leafy vegetables, such as broccoli and spinach • Vegetable oils • Cereal grains • Small amounts of vitamin K can also be found in meat and dairy foods. When your first dose of warfarin is prescribed, it doesn't matter how much vitamin K you're eating because the dosage will be based on your current blood clotting levels. However, if you make significant changes to your diet, such as increasing your vitamin K intake or cutting out foods that contain vitamin K, it could interfere with how warfarin works. Consult the healthcare professional responsible for your care before making any significant changes to your diet while taking warfarin. Why you should avoid cranberry juice whilst taking warfarin is in the link lower down. Alcohol Getting drunk or binge drinking is dangerous while taking warfarin. It may increase the effect of the drug, increasing the risk of bleeding. See links below for more information.

Alcohol and Blood Thinning Medications / Jennifer Friend, ANP
Alcohol intake can affect how the body metabolizes certain medications. Patients undergoing medication therapy should avoid drinking alcohol on a daily basis. Alcohol should be limited to no more than 1 to 2 servings of alcohol occasionally. The antiplatelet effect of alcohol increases the risk of major bleeding, even if the INR remains within the target range. In this video, Jennifer Friend, ANP, from Henrico Cardiology Associates, discusses the role alcohol can play in magnifying the effect of blood-thinning medications, commonly prescribed for heart problems.

NOACs vs Coumadin (Warfarin) - Preventing Strokes, the #1 cause of disability
ford brewer md mph . PrevMedHeartRisk.com Atrial Fib is the biggest rising cause of disability. High BP is a major cause of strokes as well, but we are managing BP better on a population basis. Anti-coagulants ( not antiplatelets) prevent stroke with a fib. Coumadin has been the big preventive until recently. But it has disadvantages: 35 days to effective levels, weekly blood test monitoring for effectiveness, and significant dietary restrictions re: Vitamin K. Samples include collard greens, spinach, kale, turnip greens, broccoli, and even blueberries, blackberries and tuna. The NOACs are now available. They are dabigatran ( Pradaxa), rivaroxaban (Xarelto), Apixaban ( Eliquis), and Edoxaban (Savaysa). NOAC advantages include: immediate effect, no weekly blood test requirement, fewer ( maybe no) food restrictions, and - most importantly - LESS BLEEDING THAN COUMADIN (including fewer hemorrhagic strokes). The only advantage for coumadin would be an immediate antidote ( Vit K). That's not much of an advantage compared to less bleeding in the first place. Also, Pradaxa already has an immediate antidote. And the other NOACS are scheduled to have immediate antidotes in less than a year. About Dr. Brewer - Ford Brewer is a physician that started as an Emergency Doctor. After seeing too many patients coming in dead from early heart attacks, he went to Johns Hopkins to learn Preventive Medicine. He went on the run the post-graduate training program (residency) in Preventive Medicine at Hopkins.

Xarelto: Warfarin Alternative Linked to Serious Bleeding Complications
Xarelto, a blood thinner and alternative to Warfarin, is prescribed to reduce the risk of serious blood clots or stroke. The FDA approved the drug in 2011 and more than 20 million prescriptions have been written in the United States alone, making Xarelto the number one prescribed blood thinner in its class. But the drug was released with one major potential flaw. While Warfarin can be counteracted with a dose of vitamin K, Xarelto was put on the market with no such antidote, making adverse effects potentially irreversible. Despite the alleged benefits of the drug, there are concerns regarding the drug’s safety. Xarelto has been linked to serious risks, including uncontrollable bleeding and gastrointestinal bleed.

The blood thinning medication Eliquis has been linked to uncontrolled bleeding events, but with no antidote. Learn about what severe side effects are possible, and what steps to take if your doctor has recommended that you take Eliquis. For more information, visit our website at http://www.lawmed.com/. And don't forget to watch our other videos at http://www.youtube.com/hensonfuerst/. (Principal office of Henson & Fuerst, PA: 2501 Blue Ridge Road, Raleigh, NC 27607) I’m David Henson, a partner with HensonFuerst Attorneys. I want to talk with you today about one of the newest blood thinning medications, Eliquis, which is being marketed as an alternative to warfarin (or Coumadin), which has been around for decades. However, warnings about Eliquis are similar to those made against two other blood thinning medications: Xarelto, and Pradaxa, which recently announced a $650 million dollar settlement for patients who were injured by that medication. First, a little background: Eliquis can be prescribed for a number of conditions, but the most common is to reduce the risk of blood clot injuries, such as stroke, deep vein thrombosis (DVT), or pulmonary embolism (PE). In particular, it has been given to patients with Atrial Fibrillation, and those who are recovering after knee and hip replacement surgery. The problem is that Eliquis has been linked to serious internal bleeding, which could lead to injury or death. And once bleeding starts, there is no antidote—no way to stop the bleeding. So, what does this mean for you? If a doctor offers to prescribe Eliquis, or if you are currently taking the medication, ask about these reports of serious bleeding, how the increased risk may affect you, and whether Eliquis is, indeed, the best option for you. In addition, I would also ask if there are other options available that will help you, WITHOUT the risk of uncontrollable bleeding. If you believe that taking Eliquis has led to gastrointestinal bleeding, hemorrhagic shock, bleeding on the brain, severe bleeding requiring a hospital stay, or death…for you or a loved one, call HensonFuerst Attorneys for important information about your rights. You may be able to collect compensation for the injury or death caused by Eliquis. One final piece of free legal advice: DO NOT contact the manufacturers—including Bristol-Myers Squibb, or Pfizer…and DO NOT SIGN ANY RELEASES OF YOUR MEDICAL RECORDS to any company before you talk with a lawyer. Let a lawyer handle everything. Big corporations look out for their own financial interests, not the interests of people who may have been harmed. If you have questions regarding your legal rights, then give me a call at 1-800-4-LAWMED. Or, visit our website at lawmed.com for more information. Life Doesn’t Wait…get help today.

Eliquis ad: "...can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding"
Warfarin is a 1950s blood-thinner and is on the World Health Organization's (WHO) list of essential medicines: http://www.who.int/medicines/publications/essentialmedicines/EML2015_8-May-15.pdf?ua=1 Drug industry looking for replacement drugs, which have shown to be much more harmful to patients. This commercial for Eliquis literally mentions death as a side effect: ""Eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding" The new drugs are: Eliquis (apixaban), Xarelto (rivaroxaban), Pradaxa (dabigatran) and Savaysa (edoxaban) "At least 8,000 deaths have been linked to three of the new anticoagulant drugs since 2010, compared with about 700 for warfarin."[2015] [Data for Savaysa (edoxaban) not yet available] Source: https://www.minnpost.com/second-opinion/2015/08/newest-blood-thinning-drugs-are-subject-troubling-depth-series-their-safety For example, Elizuis (Apixaban) side effects: "Rare Blood in the eyes blood in the urine bloody or black, tarry stools bruising or purple areas on the skin confusion constipation coughing up blood decreased alertness difficulty swallowing dizziness fainting fast heartbeat headache hives, itching, skin rash joint pain or swelling nausea and vomiting nosebleeds puffiness or swelling of the eyelids or around the eyes, face, lips, or tongue redness of the eye severe stomach pain shortness of breath tightness in the chest unusual tiredness or weakness vomiting of blood or material that looks like coffee grounds" Source: https://www.drugs.com/sfx/eliquis-side-effects.html

Coumadin Lowers the Chances of Blood Clots in the Body - Overview
http://www.rxwiki.com/coumadin https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLXxn_pCvHVm6N7v1BzNqFYiJYYwRKymPQ Coumadin, the brand-name form of warfarin, is a prescription medication used to lower the chances of blood clots forming in your body due to various causes. Coumadin belongs to a group of drugs called anticoagulants or "blood thinners.” These help prevent blood clots from forming by decreasing the formation of substances in the blood known as clotting factors. This medication comes in tablet form taken once a day, with or without food. It is also available in an injectable form to be infused into a vein by a healthcare provider at a hospital or other medical facility. Common side effects of Coumadin are nausea, vomiting, and an altered sense of taste. Seek medical attention if you experience bruising or bleeding.

Preventing Strokes: Aspirin, Plavix, Coumadin, Pradaxa, or What?
A large clinical trial testing the effects of aspirin and Plavix to prevent small strokes was stopped because there was no added benefit by combining these drugs and the risk of bleeding was too high. This information was presented at the 2012 American Stroke Association meeting in February of 2012. A second abstract presented at the same conference showed that Coumadin and aspirin were equally effective in preventing deaths and strokes in patients with congestive heart failure. All of the drugs used to anticoagulate people in mainstream medicine, which includes, aspirin, Plavix, Coumadin, and Pradaxa are associated with potentially life-threatening bleeding. Coumadin also has the effect of causing osteoporosis and accelerating arteriosclerosis after just 2 years of treatment. Nutritional medicine offers several options that include fish oil, nattokinase, lumbrokinase, and ginkgo biloba, but they have been alll but ignored by MDs because there's not sufficient research to compare the effects of mainstream drugs to these nutrients. These studies should be done the by NIH! For more information please visit www.doctorsaputo.com

It is used to decrease the clotting ability of the blood and to help prevent harmful clots from forming in the blood vessels. It is often used to prevent or treat deep venous thrombosis, a condition in which harmful blood clots form in the blood vessels of the legs. These blood clots can travel to the lungs and cause a condition called pulmonary embolism. Warfarin is also used to prevent or treat blood clots that are caused by certain heart conditions or open-heart surgery. It may be used after a heart attack to prevent blood clots from forming. Although it will not dissolve blood clots that have already formed, warfarin may keep the clots from becoming larger and causing more serious problems. This medicine is available only with your doctor's prescription. This product is available in the following dosage forms: Tablet NCLEX Nursing Precautions Drug information provided by: Micromedex It is very important that your doctor check your progress at regular visits to see if the medicine is working properly.

NCLEX Question: Helping Patients Understand Coumadin
EmpoweRN.com This is a video nursing exam or NCLEX style question going over the medication coumadin. I have placed this video in the format that helped me pass nursing school with honors and the NCLEX examination on the first attempt in 75 questions. I know it may seem unreasonably long… but it is not. Take your time, follow the instructions and read each word slowly. Lets get started ;) Title: NCLEX Question: Helping Patients Understand Coumadin A client has been discharged after hospitalization due to pulmonary embolism. In his home discharge order, the client has to remain on warfarin (Coumadin) for up to 6 months. Which of the following statement best describes the purpose of these order? A. To minimize the growth of new or existing thrombi. B. To reduce the size continually of the pulmonary embolism. C. To break up the existing pulmonary embolism until it’s totally gone D. To shrink existing emboli Correct Answer: A – warfarin (Coumadin) minimizes the growth of new or existing thrombi. Warfarin does not reduce the size or break up pulmonary emboli. For more questions & for the main video visit here: http://wp.me/s4CVjD-coumadin Warfarin aka Coumadin is the most used oral anticoagulant in the world and has been used for more than 50 years for therapy in prevention of thrombus formation and subsequent thromboembolic events. Anticoagulants are blood thinners which prevent formation of blood clots as well as prevent existent blood clots from increasing in size. Blood clots can hinder blood circulation and lead to serious medical conditions, like stroke, heart attack and pulmonary embolism. Thus warfarin is helpful in treating and preventing vein and artery blockage, stroke and heart attack. Mechanism of Action Warfarin slows down the formation of blood clots within 24 hours, but the complete effect takes place between 72 to 96 hours after taking the medication. Blood clot formation is a complicated process which requires certain compounds known as coagulating factors to be present. These coagulating factors are produced by the liver. In the presence of sufficient vitamin K. Warfarin acts by inhibiting the presence of vitamin K and this inhibits the formation of coagulating factors. Substances that require vitamin K for their formation are: the anticoagulant proteins C and S and factors II, VII, IX, and X. Therefore, medications like warfarin block coagulating factors and disturb the process of clot formation. Thus slowing down blood clot formation. In the case of blood clots that are already formed, warfarin stops the clot from getting bigger. It also prevents breakage of the clot which can be otherwise dangerous if it travels in the bloodstream and blocks blood vessels. Warfarin cannot destroy or dissolve a blood clot that is already there. But the blood clot itself may slowly dissolve with time. Nor can Warfarin reverse ischemic tissue damage either, but, may help avoid secondary thromboembolic complications that can be dangerous and even fatal.

Do blood thinners have any side effects during Pregnancy? - Dr. Mangala Devi KR
Like all drugs even blood thinners have a few side effects. However these side effects re due to prolonged use, used without proper monitoring, so what are the side effects? These side effects are usually due to bleeding at various sites. So there may be bleeding form the gums, bleeding form the teeth or even bleeding in the stools or vomitus or bleeding even during passing urine. Sometimes very rarely there may be bleed at the placental site. Hoverer this is very rare. Apart from this some of the not so common side effects include osteoporosis or increased bone loss or also hair loss or in some cases there may be also birth effects with the use of warfarin. But this is again with warfarin which tend to cross the placental barrier. But drugs like heparin or low molecular weight heparin are injectable or not cross the blood placental barrier and thereby their side effects are almost negligible on the fetus. Apart from this you may also have some local allergic reactions or even skin necrosis or skin discolouration. So it is every important that these side effects are made as minimal as possible. So these can be done by the following measures, one we use PTT or Prothrombin time or the APTT. These are certain blood tests that can be used to monitor the blood coagulation during the pregnancy and thereby we can prevent the bleeding complications. Apart from that it is also important that the doctor choses the right blood thinner for the right patients and it is also important that the patient is aware of the side effects and report immediately. At the most we may have to stop the blood thinner and start the antidote.
