This topic comes up from time to time and this morning I happened across a related article in a magazine I subscribe to.

https://cosmosmagazine.com/biology/which-medicines-don-t-go-well-with-flying

So to summarize; the drugs which cause problems are predominately related to causing clots from the combination of lack of movement and the drug having clotting as a side-effect.

Read the article, but my take on it is that being on Warfarin actually stands you in good stead for avoiding the main issues of health related risks of Flying.

I hope this puts some minds at ease

Best Wishes
