Can I take antibiotics while taking warfarin?

    You should check with your doctor and/or pharmacist before taking any antibiotics while you're taking warfarin. Some antibiotics can interact with warfarin and increase its effect, therefore, increasing your risk of bleeding. Tell your doctor before you start any new medications, whether they are prescription or over-the-counter.
