From this study (2 years ago):
I have Lyme disease and need to take strong antibiotics,like azithromax,Bixin, or ceftin. I need to know how these affect coumadin since Rifampin, also considered, reduces effects of bloodthining with coumadin.
From this study (4 years ago):
I used to have massively thick, gorgeous hair. Six months after beginning therapy with Warfarin, my hair fell out in enormous clumps - wads of hair in my hand. I have continually lost hair in the 15 years I have been on Warfarin, and will need to be on it the rest of my life. I have now lost 80% of my hair! My hair is now thin and fine, and my scalp shows through my hair. Does anyone have any ideas that can help me, please!?
