    Hi S. Rege,


    Sometimes warfarin (Coumadin) or other blood thinners are used in conjuction with blood pressure medications to control high blood pressure. I recommend contacting your physician to determine if you are on any blood thinning medications that need to be temporarily discontinued.


    All the best,
