Warfarin & Antibiotics

Antibiotic always interacts withmy warfarin by increasing the blood thinning effect. Ever since I started warfarin therapy, I had taken Amoxicillin, Clarithromycin, Tetracycline & Augmentin for different treatments.  

My INR usually shot up by the 2nd or 3rd day after I started antibiotics treatment.

I experienced the greatest surgein my INR when I took Augmentin.

My INR shot up to 4.2 from myusual 2.2 ideal range by the 3rd day. I stopped warfarin medication upon the advice of my staff nurse for the next 2 days. Meanwhile, I increased my intake of food high in Vitamin K to help bring down my INRsooner.

By the 3rd day after I stopped my warfarin, my INR came down to 1.8.

My advice is, if you are taking antibiotics for a period of time, like 7 -14 days in my case, it may be better for you to check your INR again 3 days after starting on the antibiotics, to ensure that the INR stays within your ideal range.
