Does anyone else take warfarin

driftstream profile image

I have just been diagnosed with ET and I am due to start on Hydroxycarbamide on Wednesday - I have been on warfarin due to AF for approx 15 years - I was wondering how warfarin would react with the Hydroxy and if anyone has experience of this. I am 70 years old and led an active life.

if you have problems with Warfarin ask for Pradaxa, there is no need for levels to checked and you can eat anything you want.

I cant take that as I have also got leaking heart valve and have been told its not suitable for me but thank you for the reply

I also have a leaking mitral valve and AF, the literature says its ideal for AF.

I used to take Warfarin with HU due to Budd-Chiari Syndrom. I've had no issues with Warfarin.

I took Warfarin with hydroxycarbamide for about fifteen years with no problems.

Wishing you all the best

Thank you for that its does help


I take Warfarin daily for life for artificial heart valve. I was diagnosed with ET almost 3 years ago and have been taking Peg Interferon for 30 months. So can't comment on Hydroxy but can say there has been no problems with Peg.

What time of day do you take your Hydroxy - is it best to take it with food or after food or what - I take my warfarin at 6pm
