I assume it worked fine for me, I was only given it while in the Hospital.
Working / Worked
Took Lovenox twice: when bridging from heparin to warfarin, and again briefly when INR levels suggested there might be a clot during the time I was using warfarin or that the warfarin wasn't working

Working / Worked
I actually take Xarelto
