Exercise caution when botanical (herbal) products are taken concomitantly with COUMADIN. Few adequate, well-controlled studies evaluating the potential for metabolic and/or pharmacologic interactions between botanicals and COUMADIN exist.
Due to a lack of manufacturing standardization with botanical medicinal preparations, the amount of active ingredients may vary. This could further confound the ability to assess potential interactions and effects on anticoagulation.
Monitor the patient's response with additional INR determinations when initiating or discontinuing any botanicals.
