Lovenox (enoxaparin) for Deep Vein Thrombosis: Works great for deep vein thrombosis! However, I always experience heavy bruising at the injection site.

Lovenox (enoxaparin) for Deep Vein Thrombosis: It is the only medicine that I can take to assist with the fighting of DVT for me. Don't care for sticking myself everyday, although it is keeping me alive. I have tried Coumadin and Praxada, but with both became severely ill, so the only choice was Lovenox. Am looking for the option of going back to a pill or some other treatment one day, instead of injections.

Lovenox (enoxaparin) for Deep Vein Thrombosis: I found this medication to be very effective, however extremely expensive. My hospital charged $589.00 per injection!

Review by Jennnay:

Lovenox (enoxaparin) for Deep Vein Thrombosis Prophylaxis after Knee Replacement Surgery: My PC put me on Lovenox as a bridge therapy. I usually take Coumadin as I have a greenfield filter in place, due to a DVT and bilateral pulmonary embolisms in 2006 following shoulder surgery. I'm going in for a total knee replacement next Monday. I've stopped the Coumadin yesterday and started injecting the Lovenox this morning. I'm insulin dependent so injecting into the stomach was old hat. Very surprised at the volume that needs to be injected.. I have a large bruise and sore lump in my belly from my first injection. I hope I don't bruise as badly with upcoming injections.. I will try injecting slower to minimize bruising.

Review by Terry Wade:

Lovenox (enoxaparin) for Deep Vein Thrombosis: I have been on Lovenox since June 1996, after two Pulmonary Embolisms. On Coumadin. I draw from 300ml vials twice a day using 31 guage needles from B-D. Using the pre-filled needles are too large. Inject very slow reduces bruising at the injection site. I inject my legs as well as my belly and rotate around to reduce sore spots.

Lovenox (enoxaparin) for Deep Vein Thrombosis: Overall, this medicine got me out of the hospital in one day with a large clot in my calf. Much better than the IV drip option. Shots in stomach aren't too bad if you go slow...let the medicine work its way in slowly. I did experience small bruising at each shot location, and significant abdominal muscle pain. The muscle pain was a unique side effect from all the sites I searched, but I was very careful not to inject into a muscle.

Lovenox (enoxaparin) for Deep Vein Thrombosis, Prophylaxis: I was on this medicine for DVT prophylaxis. It kept me anti-coagulated like no other medicine.
