Hello -

 

You do have to take somewhat of a precaution.

 

The testosterone may increase your INR -- the testosterone can increase the potency of the warfarin medication.

 

So you would have to monitor your INR more carefully if you are going to be taking testosterone regularly.

I sincerely hope that I have helped you, and that I have earned my 5 star rating today!
