Brief Answer: Vit K is another antidote for Heparin. Detailed Answer: Hello, I have gone through your query and understood your concern. Protamine sulfate is used as reversal of Heparin. If you are allergic to protamin, intravenous use of VITAMIN K would also be useful as antidote for Heparin. Hope it helped you. Thanks.
