Ask the prescribing physician if it will interact with warfarin. Verify this is correct by calling your cardiologist's nurse and tell them what you are taking. Sometimes it's no big deal. Sometimes they want an INR test at a certain time.Antibiotics Interactions ?, Dealing with some issues that will require taking antibiotics soon,
any body has experience in the interaction between Warfarin and Antiotics ?, What to Expect ?
WIll INR go up, or down ?, or no change ?, Thank you for your comments,
I have been on a lot of different antibiotics over the ten years that I’ve been on warfarin. Generally they have little effect on my inr. I really think that everyone’s body reacts differently. Get your doctor’s advice. Check online sites for interactions. Bottom line—you will need to see what that particular antibiotic does to your inr.Ask the prescribing physician if it will interact with warfarin.

My previous endocrinologist was a research doctor. He called the New England Journal of Medicine the most dangerous publication in the United States. This was because of it's high reputation. It's articles will make the front pages of newspapers across the US and the evening news. Unfortunately, it's retractions make the back pages of newspapers across the US and never make the TV news broadcasts. For you, it is probably safe, as you will read the retractions as well as the articles.What you are advised by doctor professionals is cranberry juice more than anything. There is an enzime that can mess with your INR. Just ask your cardio or other medical professional on what they know what you should be consistent on your daily intake. I never go by so called medical articles unless they are in New England Journal of Medicine. Reliable sources. Hugs for today.
That is a significantly larger larger variation than I would normally see between one week's test and the next: +/- 0.2 is more the norm.pretty much within what I'd call normal variance, how does that sit with your observations of your INR variability outside of this context of antibiotics?
There are however soon pretty well established ones. Anything which interferes with Cytochrome P450 for instanceMy point - it would actually be quite difficult to prove interactions above the normal noise of warfarin. Randomization, statistics and many people would be required.
