Warfarin / Food interactions

I googled and found that is it Vitimin K that is the issue: "Vitamin K decreases the effects of Warfarin. Large amounts of vitamin K are found in foods such as liver, broccoli, brussels sprouts, and green leafy vegetables (e.g., spinach, Swiss chard, coriander, collards, cabbage). Do not change the amount of these foods in your diet without first talking to your doctor."

Don't know how useful the info is however - I would hope that the doctor has given you a Patient Information Leaflet?? may need to check it carefully as I think Asprin is also contraindicated.
