As I don't want to take warfarin or similar I thought I would try rutin which I have used years ago. I am taking furosimide and digoxin tablets for mitral regurgitation and high blood pressure. Is Rutin safe to take with thus medication. As a younger woman before I knew I had this problem I also took Hawthorne tablets which I did find made me feel better. However now on Drs. medicine I'm not sure I can take any of these. Would appreciate your opinion.
Hi. There are no know interactions between rutin and furosemide and digoxin but you should talk to your doctor before taking it. That said, it really isn't nearly as effective an anticoagulant like warfarin so you may be placing yourself in danger if you try to use it instead of the warfarin
