Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

There are a number of drugs that are not allowed with warfarin because they either decrease (cause clotting) or increase (cause bleeding) its effectiveness.

Tyrosine plays a role in blood clotting and excess levels can impair clotting. For this reason it is advised that the two should not be taken together unless under a doctor's supervision to monitor for problems.

It may be best, if possible, not to use the tyrosine, but if you still wish to , it should be supervision.

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
