Lovenox Reviews

Show: for
Gave myself injections for 6 days, twice a day.
painful bruising real slow method to get my inr up and once at the correct level inr has spun out of control off of it now
Working / Worked
Received shots twice a day for 3 1/2 days now. Have given myself just 2 shots so far, hopefully will get better at it. First time I freaked out, thinking I'd broken the needle off in my body.
Have no idea if it's working yet, time will tell, right?
Working / Worked
I had to take the shots for a few days to bridge before a surgery. Giving myself shots was weird, but otherwise it went fine.
Working / Worked
I am off it now, I was only on Lovenox initially in the hospital for 6 days while they waited for the Coumadin to kick in. No side effects, just heavy bruising at injection sites.
Working / Worked
Left severe bruises all over my abdomen, one of which permanently changed the color of my skin. Luckily I only had to be on this until my levels on Warfain were stable.
Working / Worked
Giving myself shots is not something I enjoy, but it was worth it to be able to get out of the hospital.
Working / Worked
shots were painful, but were pretty easy to give myself.
Currently on it while awaiting outpatient procedure. No real side effects except for bruising from injections
Working / Worked
Currently working, as a heparin substitute on an outpatient basis. Daily injections every 12 hrs
