Cranberry juice is increasingly used for the prevention and adjunctive treatment of urinary tract infections. The United Kingdom's Committee on Safety of Medicines has alerted clinicians to a potential interaction between warfarin and cranberry juice and has advised that patients avoid their concurrent use. Review and analysis of the literature revealed that ingestion of large volumes of cranberry juice destabilize warfarin therapy. Small amounts of juice are not expected to cause such an interaction. Clinicians should be aware of this potential interaction and monitor and counsel patients accordingly.
There have been conflicting reports about the effect of grapefruit juice on warfarin.
Ginseng root ... It may possibly interact with warfarin as well. There are a number of different preparations grouped under the general term ‘ginseng’, so caution is needed when selecting products.
I'm on warfarin and was told about the vitamin K bit (among other things).As for what plants to avoid - belladonna?
