Vitamin E Interactions Explained

Combining vitamin E with medications that increase the risk of bleeding (such as antiplatelet and anticoagulant medications) may further increase the risk of bleeding, including dangerous internal bleeding.
Check with your healthcare provider before taking vitamin E in combination with an anticoagulant or antiplatelet medication. Be sure to specifically discuss the possible bleeding risk. In many cases, your healthcare provider may recommend that it is okay to combine such medications, as long as you are careful to watch for any signs of easy bruising or bleeding.
