vitamin k and plavix

I have heard that there is some problem mixing vitamin K with a blood thinner.  I am taking 75 mg of plavix and cannot find anything about the vitamin K interaction.  I need additional calcium, and the brand I am looking at taking would give me 40mcg of vitamin K.  Is this safe or a problem?  Where can I find how much vitamin K is in a serving of broccoli or spinich?

I believe the problems with Vitamin K are with Warafin & Coumadin.  They may not apply to Plavix.  You might want to ask your doctor.
