The C.A.M. Report
Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog ran from 2006 to 2016 and was intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    Documenting interactions between warfarin and supplements

    Dr. Anna Garrett, a clinical pharmacist practitioner at Cornerstone Health Care in High Point, North Carolina, reports on the ClotCare International Registry of Interactions Between Oral Anticoagulants and Dietary Supplements.

    Say what?

    The aim of this registry is to obtain reports of drug interactions between oral anticoagulants (warfarin; Coumadin) and dietary supplements. These data can be used as a guide for clinicians regarding the safety of certain products in patients taking oral anticoagulants, and as a tool for researchers to develop studies in order to further evaluate the risks associated with the concomitant use of oral anticoagulants and certain dietary supplements.

    Anticoagulation specialists who care for patients being treated with anticoagulants are invited to submit reports of drug interactions through ClotCare’s Web-based reporting system.
