Should I avoid cranberry juice while taking warfarin?

Vitamin K can interfere with the blood-thinning effects of warfarin, so it is very important to maintain a consistent amount of vitamin K in your diet. Avoid drastic changes in your dietary habits. For instance, if you normally do not drink cranberry juice, you should avoid cranberry juice and foods that contain cranberries because it may interfere with your medicine. Talk with your doctor or pharmacist about foods and drinks that you should avoid or limit while taking this medicine. Also, ask for a list of foods that contain vitamin K because you should keep your intake consistent and eat about the same amount of vitamin K every day.
