Is there an interaction between warfarin and Iodoral, an iodine potassium iodide?
There's very little written on Iodoral and interaction with Coumadin® (warfarin). Unless Iodoral is a supplement that has been specifically recommended by your physician you may wish to avoid it. There are a lot of claims made about this and other supplements that are not well founded in science. Checking with your doctor about whether he or she feels that a particular supplement fits into your therapy is very important.
Thanks for writing,
Timothy S. Harlan, MD, FACP
