    If you fall off your bike while you are taking warfarin, you should call your doctor or get emergency medical help right away – even if you don't seem to be bleeding. This is especially important if you have hit your head. You may be bleeding inside. Warfarin keeps your blood from clotting, so it's easy for you to bleed or bruise while you're taking this medicine.
