Reply To: I will have to take Warfarin soon for artial fib. I have been taking a Vit D supplement for about a year because I had a Vit D deficiency. I have since started taking Vit K2 to assist Vit D..The problem I have is that you are not allowed to take Vit K when on Warfarin, but didn't say which one, Vit k1 or Vit K2.
There are other alternatives to Warfarin but they have no antidote if internal bleeding occurs, whereas Warfarin uses Vit K as an antidote. I am seeing my doctor soon, but would like some input on this subject as it has me puzzled. Warfarin has its drawbacks such as regular monitoring and regular blood tests, the other three options I could take are Pradaxa, Xarelto or Eliquis but these come with no antidote. I'm just a little concerned and confused.
