If you are being treated with any of the following medications, you should not use vanadium without first talking to your health care provider.
Anticoagulant or antiplatelet dugs (blood thinners) -- Vanadium may increase the risk of bleeding when taken with these drugs:
- Clopidogrel (Plavix)
- Warfarin (Coumadin)
Drugs for diabetes -- Because vanadium may lower blood sugar levels, people who also take medications to lower blood sugar could be at risk of developing hypoglycemia (low blood sugar).
