  • Does Apple Cider Vinegar Interact with Warfarin or Metropolol?

    Anyone know? I keep getting bad gallbladder attacks(self diagnosed) and I read online that Apple juice with apple cider vinegar helps with the pain, but I'm wondering if it interacts with my medicines. Help would greatly be appreciated!

    Don't know about Metropolol, but I don't think there would be an interaction with warfarin..... I have had apples, apple juice, cider and vinegar without any problem.
    Starr-Edwards mechanical AVR 1967 at age 31.....University of Kentucky Med. Ctr., Drs. Richard Wood & Gordon Danielson surgeons. No surgery (heart or otherwise) since. On Warfarin ACT since surgery with no diet, lifestyle, or activity restrictions....and I live one day at a time.

      I'm on both Metoprolol and Warfarin after AVR in January and love apple cider vinegar on collard greens...have not had any interactions with either drug...even the collard greens don't seem to have affected INR levels too much. Check with your doctor though obviously.

        In my Non-Professional opinion, I would be surprised if there was an interaction between Apple Cider and either of your medications.

        You can always ask your PHARMACIST about interactions for FREE,
        or your Doctor (for the cost of an office visit). You might also ask whoever is managing your Warfarin Dosing / INR Testing.
