Pharmagen launches Warfarin-friendly multivitamin

BY Michael Johnsen

SILVER SPRING, Md. — Pharmagen on Thursday announced the launch of Clotamin, a unique multivitamin formulated without vitamin K in order to meet the special nutritional needs of people taking blood-thinning medications (anticoagulants), such as Warfarin. 

Because it does not contain vitamin K, Clotamin can be taken with Warfarin without affecting international normalized ratio levels. 

Warfarin is the most prescribed blood thinning medication in North America — the therapy helps to reduce the formation of blood clots, which is important in the prevention of heart attacks, strokes, and blockage of major veins and arteries.
