Does Coumadin interact with Etodolac?

I AM IN A LOT OF PAIN AND TAKING A BUNCH OF MEDICATIONS. CURRENTLY I AM TAKING NAPROSYN WHICH MY DOCTOR SAID I COULD TAKE EVEN THOUGH I AM TAKING COUMADIN. IT IS NOT HELPING AND MY NEIGHBOR MENTIONED ETODOLAC WHICH I DON T THINK I HAVE EVER TAKEN. WOULD IT BE OK TO SWITCH AND SEE IF IT HELPS? I AM TAKING: THYROID VIT D PRILOSEC METOPOLOL LISINOPRIL ASA PRAVASTATIN COUMADIN COQ10 NAPROSYN TYLENOL

HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

No, you would not be able to use the etodolac with the the coumadin.

Etodolac is an NSAID, this means it belongs the same family of medications as ibuprofen, voltaren, naproxen.
None of these medications can be used can be with coumadin because there would be an increase the risk of bleeding.

You would need consider another medication from the a different family of medications eg opioids.

I hope this helps
