I have had no reaction to bee stings prior to being prescribed warfarin but one sting on the hand has left me with swelling at the site and tracking up my arm. Is there any data on bee venom and warfarin inter-reacting?
From this study (1 year ago):
swelling of finger on left hand causing need to have a ring cut off
