Drug Interactions With Fondaparinux

Additional Information and Notable Exceptions

Fondaparinux does not interact with vitamin K or foods rich in vitamin K. People often mistakenly assume that it does, as warfarin (Coumadin®, Jantoven®), an oral anticoagulant, interacts with vitamin K. Of course, you must still follow the usual dietary restrictions if you are taking warfarin and fondaparinux together. However, if you are taking just fondaparinux, there are no dietary restrictions.
Fondaparinux does not interact with acetaminophen (Tylenol®). Therefore, acetaminophen is usually the preferred over-the-counter pain or fever medication for people on fondaparinux.
It should be noted that herbal medications might interact unpredictably with fondaparinux, perhaps increasing the risk of bleeding or possibly making fondaparinux less effective. Therefore, check with your healthcare provider before combining any herbal medication with fondaparinux.
