Warfarin and Tylenol
When my child began taking Coumadin/Warfarin, I was told by all of the medical professionals that we must avoid Ibuprofen (Motrin) and that Tylenol was the only safe med. for pain relief/fever reduction. Yesterday I received Idrees' Warfarin in the mail and in the package was an insert warning patients about taking Tylenol while on Warfarin. OK...now I'm confused!! The insert stated that Tylenol can make bleeding more of a risk. Has anyone else heard this or been told to avoid Tylenol? What other choices are there that are relatively safe for Warfarin users?
