This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

most likely you can take this organic bamboo capsule with warfarin.

Dr. David :

but you have to let your doctor know about it.

Dr. David :

and continue to have your blood monitored for the antioagulation

Dr. David :

and get regular INR, PT, PTT blood testing.

Dr. David :

avoid excessive green leafy vegetables like spinach and kale which have lots of vitamin K which can make the warfarin not work

Dr. David :

let me know if you have other questions.
