MEDICATION GUIDE

JANTOVEN ® (JAN-to-ven) Tablets
(Warfarin Sodium Tablets, USP)

Read this Medication Guide before you start taking JANTOVEN (Warfarin Sodium Tablets, USP) and each time you get a refill. There may be new information. This Medication Guide does not take the place of talking to your healthcare provider about your medical condition or treatment. You and your healthcare provider should talk about JANTOVEN when you start taking it and at regular checkups.

What is the most important information I should know about JANTOVEN?

JANTOVEN can cause bleeding which can be serious and sometimes lead to death. This is because JANTOVEN is a blood thinner medicine that lowers the chance of blood clots forming in your body.

You may have a higher risk of bleeding if you take JANTOVEN and:
are 65 years of age or older
have a history of stomach or intestinal bleeding
have high blood pressure (hypertension)
have a history of stroke, or “mini-stroke” (transient ischemic attack or TIA)
have serious heart disease
have a low blood count or cancer
have had trauma, such as an accident or surgery
have kidney problems
take other medicines that increase your risk of bleeding, including:
a medicine that contains heparin
other medicines to prevent or treat blood clots
nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
take warfarin sodium for a long time. Warfarin sodium is the active ingredient in JANTOVEN.

Tell your healthcare provider if you take any of these medicines. Ask your healthcare provider if you are not sure if your medicine is one listed above.

Many other medicines can interact with JANTOVEN and affect the dose you need or increase JANTOVEN side effects. Do not change or stop any of your medicines or start any new medicines before you talk to your healthcare provider.

Do not take other medicines that contain warfarin sodium while taking JANTOVEN.

Get your regular blood test to check for your response to JANTOVEN. This blood test is called an INR test. The INR test checks to see how fast your blood clots. Your healthcare provider will decide what INR numbers are best for you. Your dose of JANTOVEN will be adjusted to keep your INR in a target range for you.
Call your healthcare provider right away if you get any of the following signs or symptoms of bleeding problems:
pain, swelling, or discomfort
headaches, dizziness, or weakness
unusual bruising (bruises that develop without known cause or grow in size)
nosebleeds
bleeding gums
bleeding from cuts takes a long time to stop
menstrual bleeding or vaginal bleeding that is heavier than normal
pink or brown urine
red or black stools
coughing up blood
vomiting blood or material that looks like coffee grounds
Some foods and beverages can interact with JANTOVEN and affect your treatment and dose.
Eat a normal, balanced diet. Talk to your healthcare provider before you make any diet changes. Do not eat large amounts of leafy, green vegetables. Leafy, green vegetables contain vitamin K. Certain vegetable oils also contain large amounts of vitamin K. Too much vitamin K can lower the effect of JANTOVEN.
Always tell all of your healthcare providers that you take JANTOVEN.
Wear or carry information that you take JANTOVEN.

See “What are the possible side effects of JANTOVEN?” for more information about side effects.
