Phytonadione, or vitamin K, is often taken as a pill. If you take vitamin K in pill form your doctor may also prescribe another medicine, called a bile salt, to take with it. Other forms of phytonadione are injections that are given in the muscle -- called intramuscular injections -- as well as injections given under the skin, known as subcutaneous, or "Sub-Q," injections. If it is necessary, phytonadione can be given through an IV line as well.
