Hi, I'm Male 56 and have developed a DVT in groin and left leg. I'm on Warfarin now, maybe indefinitely. I only weigh 150lbs. Weight training on and off about 20 years. There is a history of DVT and PE in family. I had PE over 20 years ago. I took Peptides, GHRP-6 with CJC1295 about 8 weeks ago, 1st time ever .
My query is: is it safe for me to take Peptides again, even though I'll still be taking Warfarin. I dont know whether Peptides were a factor in my DVT!
I'm not sure how to access any reply to my query; I'm completely new to Internet. I really hope you can offer some advice. Many thanks. Regards, XXXXXX.

Thanks for writing in.
I am a qualified and certified cardiologist. I read your mail with diligence.
I searched the net for your query as I do not recall any such incidence of correlation of the two in my personal experience.
I could not find any research or case report where GHRP-6 or CHC1295 causing blood clots and they do not appear to interact with warfarin.

There is a limitation: no reports means that the drug Warfarin has been tested with these peptides. I do not see any reason to believe that these peptides were the cause of DVT in you is based on this presumption that warfarin will remain as effective as before.
You have a risk factor:
You have a family history of clotting.
You are prone to formation of clot.

Scientifically, I find no reason to blame peptides for that event.
If you have any further query you are most welcome to ask. It shall be replied as soon as possible.

With Best Wishes
