Proper Use

Drug information provided by: Micromedex

A nurse or other trained health professional will give you this medicine. This medicine is given through a needle placed in one of your veins.

Your doctor will only give you a few doses of this medicine, and then you may be switched to an oral medicine that works the same way. If you have any concerns about this, talk to your doctor.

Carefully follow your doctor's instructions about any special diet. This medicine works best when you eat about the same amount of vitamin K in your food every day. Tell your doctor before changing your diet. Avoid big changes in how much vitamin K you eat. Some foods that have a high amount of vitamin K are asparagus, broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, green leafy vegetables (such as collards, turnip greens, mustard greens, spinach, and salad greens), plums, rhubarb, and certain vegetable oils (such as soybean oil and canola oil).

Do not drink alcohol while you are receiving this medicine. Also avoid drinking cranberry juice or eating cranberry products.
