Warfarin, DVT & Marijuana

Postby thumbelina » Sun Sep 30, 2007 9:57 pm

Hello,

I am a 24 year old female with a massive DVT of the left leg. It is a first time occurance and developped after a fall down the stairs.

I was wondering if it is alright to smoke marijuana while on warfarin for a DVT.

Smoking is a risk for overall development of vascular disease, lung cancer, etc. just like cigarettes. You would be wise to avoid it for many reasons; DVT is just one of those.

Wishing you the best in the healing of this problem.
