    Abstract

    We report 3 cases in which adults used a superwarfarin rodenticide (bromadiolone, brodifacoum, or difethialone) to attempt suicide. No patient developed coagulation abnormalities or significant clinical problems, and all were dischanged alive from the emergency department (2 to home, 1 to a psychiatric facility). An updated action plan based on case reports published in the last 10 years is also provided.
