Reviews for Enoxaparin

Stogie · Taken for less than 1 month July 5, 2019

For Deep Vein Thrombosis, Prophylaxis: "The enoxaparin medication worked fine . The problem was with the injector! I had to be on this drug for 14 days and 4 of the injectors misfired the safety cylinder rendering the access to the med. impossible. This caused me to have to purchase 4 additional syringes at a cost of $58.04 co-pay on my insurance. When I called the listed complaint line I was unable to even get connected to a human being to ask for assistance. Can I get a refund for the faulty syringes?"

For Deep Vein Thrombosis: "Everything ok, once you get used to the injections."

Lovenox (enoxaparin) for Deep Vein Thrombosis: "Excellent!! The PCP tried to switch me to tabs and will insist this as I have medicare (A&B) as well as medicaid. What is it that the PCP is insisting on alternatives to Lovenox? PLEASE respond? I have a MA in economics and have taken undergrad. Anatomy & Phys. in addition to a course in pharmocology."

For Deep Vein Thrombosis Prophylaxis after Hip Replacement Surgery: "I just started taking this drug as a trial for avascular necrosis to try and reestablished blood flow to my left hip. I have been tested and found genetically prone to have vascular disease and blood clots so I was approved to use this. After 3 days, I have a very sore tummy, 1 black bruise and a headache but a lot of hope that as the 2nd person to try this drug, in this area, to save a hip joint from replacement, that all will be well. All your words gave me hope. Thank you."

Lovenox (enoxaparin) for Deep Vein Thrombosis, Prophylaxis: "I have Factor V Leiden, Prothrombin Mutation, Protein C Deficiency. Injected twice-daily, subcutaneously while pregnant. Injections were taken in the abdominal area, twice daily, for the duration of pregnancy. Regular treatments were warfarin (Coumadin) while not pregnant. Needles were not very big, but left a lot of bruising because of the thin blood, but that is to be expected with any blood thinner injection. Last month of pregnancy I used heparin injections, I was told they leave the body faster than Lovenox. Just in case of spontaneous labor."

Lovenox (enoxaparin) for Deep Vein Thrombosis: "Pain with the injection"

Anonymous December 24, 2011

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. "

Pete Noe June 26, 2010

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

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."

Terry Wade November 1, 2009

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."
