Brief Answer:
Folic acid interacts with coumadin drugs but dose change is not required.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query on HealthcareMagic.

Folic acid is known to interact with Coumadin at cellular level.

However, studies have not shown any requirement of change or modification of coumadin drug.
You can take Folic acid when on coumadin.

It will be good if you keep your treating physician well informed about your Folic acid intake also (if at all you're considering this).

Thanks and take care, let me know if there's any further query.
