Stopping Coumadin?

@Coumadin and Colonoscopy -
In a few days I am scheduled to have a colonoscopy/EGD to look for the reason I am severely anemic. I am also on @Coumadin since I have Antiphospholipid Syndrome in addition to Lupus. The directions for the colonoscopy prep say to stop my @Coumadin 4 days before the procedure but I'm curious if I need to be put on Lovonox in the meantime.

Can I Take Vicodin While I'm On Coumadin?

Can I Take Vicodin While I'm On Coumadin?

I was diagnosed with lupus when I was admitted to the hospital for a DVT in my femoral vein and multiple pulmonary embolisms in my lungs. They put me on the blood thinner Coumadin to handle the clots. I am having a flare and everything is hurting. I can't get comfortable sitting or laying down. It's impossible right now. I was going to take a Vicodin but I wasn't sure if it would affect my Coumadin or any of my other medications.

I am on coumadin for clot as well. Do NOT take anything, not even over the counter medications, without checking with your hematologist first. Your vicodin could very well have an NSAID in it that… read more
