Medical Editor: John P. Cunha, DO, FACOEP
Jantoven (warfarin sodium) is an anticoagulant (blood thinner) used to prevent heart attacks, strokes, and blood clots in veins and arteries. Jantoven is available in generic form. Common side effects of Jantoven include nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, stomach/abdominal pain, bloating, gas, or changes in the sense of taste.
The dose of Jantoven is individualized, and is based on clinical findings. Jantoven can interact with herbal (botanical) products including: bromelains, coenzyme Q10, danshen, dong quai, garlic, ginkgo biloba, ginseng, or St. John's wort. Jantoven interacts with many other drugs, and these interactions can be dangerous, even fatal. Tell your doctor all prescription and over-the-counter medications and supplements you use. Jantoven is not recommended for use during pregnancy because of serious (possibly fatal) harm to a fetus. Discuss birth control with your doctor. If you become pregnant or think you may be pregnant, tell your doctor. Consult your doctor if you plan to become pregnant. Your doctor may switch the type of medication you use during pregnancy. Very small amounts of this medication may pass into breast milk but it is unlikely to harm a nursing infant. Consult your doctor before breastfeeding.
Our Jantoven (warfarin sodium) Side Effects Drug Center provides a comprehensive view of available drug information on the potential side effects when taking this medication.

Jantoven FDA Prescribing Information: Side Effects
Potential adverse reactions to Jantoven® Tablets (Warfarin Sodium Tablets, USP) may include:
- Fatal or nonfatal hemorrhage from any tissue or organ. This is a consequence of the anticoagulant effect. The signs, symptoms, and severity will vary according to the location and degree or extent of the bleeding. Hemorrhagic complications may present as paralysis; paresthesia; headache, chest, abdomen, joint, muscle or other pain; dizziness; shortness of breath, difficulty breathing or swallowing; unexplained swelling; weakness; hypotension; or unexplained shock. Therefore, the possibility of hemorrhage should be considered in evaluating the condition of any anticoagulated patient with complaints which do not indicate an obvious diagnosis. Bleeding during anticoagulant therapy does not always correlate with PT/INR. (See OVERDOSAGE: Treatment.)
- Bleeding which occurs when the PT/INR is within the therapeutic range warrants diagnostic investigation since it may unmask a previously unsuspected lesion, e.g., tumor, ulcer, etc.
- Necrosis of skin and other tissues. (See WARNINGS.)
- Adverse reactions reported infrequently include: hypersensitivity/allergic reactions, systemic cholesterol microembolization, purple toes syndrome, hepatitis, cholestatic hepatic injury, jaundice, elevated liver enzymes, hypotension, vasculitis, edema, anemia, pallor, fever, rash, dermatitis, including bullous eruptions, urticaria, angina syndrome, chest pain, abdominal pain including cramping, flatulence/bloating, fatigue, lethargy, malaise, asthenia, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, pain, headache, dizziness, loss of consciousness, syncope, coma, taste perversion, pruritis, alopecia, cold intolerance, and paresthesia including feeling cold and chills.
Rare events of tracheal or tracheobronchial calcification have been reported in association with long-term warfarin therapy. The clinical significance of this event is unknown. Priapism has been associated with anticoagulant administration, however, a causal relationship has not been established.
