WHAT IS THE USE OF ENOXAPARIN INJECTION?
Enoxaparin is a blood thinner that is used to prevent blood clots in the legs in patients who are on bedrest or who are having hip, knee, or stomach surgery. It is used in conjunction with aspirin to avoid angina (chest discomfort) and heart attack consequences. It’s also used to treat blood clots in the legs when used with warfarin. Enoxaparin belongs to the low molecular weight heparins class of drugs. It acts by preventing the production of clotting substances.
How should this medicine be used?
Enoxaparin is given as a syringe injection that is delivered just beneath the skin , not into the muscle. It’s normally administered twice a day. You’ll most likely start taking the medicine while you’re in the hospital and continue for 10 to 14 days. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and if there is anything you don’t understand, ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain it to you. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for using enoxaparin. Do not inject more or less of it, or inject it more frequently than your doctor has suggested.
Even if you feel OK, keep taking enoxaparin. Stopping enoxaparin without consulting your doctor is not a good idea.
Your healthcare professional will either educate you how to give the shot yourself or make arrangements for someone else to give it to you. In most cases, enoxaparin is injected into the stomach. Each time you deliver the shot, you must use a different part of the stomach. Ask your healthcare practitioner if you have any queries about where to administer the shot. Each syringe contains enough medication for one shot. Do not use the needle and syringe more than once. To avoid accidental injury, ask your doctor, pharmacist, or other health care provider how to properly dispose of used needles and syringes. Keep needles and syringes out of children’s reach.
