Hello and welcome to e health forum.

Viagra and other medications for ED are phospho diesterase inhibitors and help to dilate the blood vessels in the penis, helping in erection.

Coumadin is a blood thinner and has a complete different action and indications.

There are no drug interactions between the two medications and you can use them together, as prescribed by your doctor.

I hope this helps.
