Normally there is no interaction between HcG and any other drugs but inspite of this it is always advisable to consult your treating physician before starting a concomittant use of hcg with other medicines.Since you are a person who is on warfarin for dvt and pe it is very important in your case to consult your physician.If he says you can use it with out any poblems you can start on HcG diet.
