Drug Interactions With Tinzaparin

Other Medications That "Thin" the Blood
Other medications that have anticoagulant, antiplatelet, or thrombolytic effects may increase the risk of bleeding when taken with tinzaparin. Always check with your healthcare provider before combining tinzaparin with any such medications. Sometimes, these medications (especially thrombolytics, aspirin, or warfarin) are combined with tinzaparin intentionally.

Additional Information on Drug Interactions and Notable Exceptions

Tinzaparin does not interact with vitamin K or foods rich in vitamin K. People often mistakenly assume that it does, since 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 tinzaparin together. However, if you are using tinzaparin alone, there are no dietary restrictions.
Tinzaparin does not interact with acetaminophen (Tylenol®). Therefore, acetaminophen is usually the preferred over-the-counter (OTC) pain or fever medication for people on tinzaparin.
Herbal medications may interact unpredictably with tinzaparin, perhaps increasing the risk of bleeding or perhaps making tinzaparin less effective. Therefore, check with your healthcare provider before combining any herbal products with tinzaparin.
