Warfarin and Calcium supplements
Due to a minor side effect of one of the osteo drugs, I ended up in the hospital with pulmonary thrombosis and am now on warfarin. I'm NOT good at taking supplements, but I found a Calcium product that's like a candy and that helps me psychologically enjoy taking the product. Also, my recent bone scan showed some nice improvement, so the calcium plus Boniva injections are working.
BUT, this calcium I'm enjoying is Viactive Calcium Plus D, which you may have seen advertised on tv. It has Vitamin K, which counteracts the effect of the warfarin! Since my doctor's simple answer is 'take another calcium supplement' and I don't LIKE that idea, I've been having to balance my consumption of the Calcium times with the warfarin.
I'd like some input from others and/or a professional, as to whether I get the most good from the two products if I take the warfarin late in the day after I've had the Calcium - or early in the day BEFORE I take the calcium?
