Answer

Management of vitamin E toxicity consists of discontinuing vitamin E supplements and monitoring the PT if bleeding complications develop.

Vitamin K replacement through the oral or subcutaneous route should reduce the elevated PT and decrease the risk of bleeding in patients who are taking anticoagulants or who have vitamin K deficiency.
