Lovenox Reviews

Show: for
Working / Worked
Liked it, didn't mind giving myself shots, no real noticeable side effects.
Working / Worked
Was on Lovenox 2 x a day until my INR level with Coumadin reached the desired level
Working / Worked
As far as I know it was effective. Hated having to inject myself though (do not like needles) but besides having lovely little bruises littered across my abdomen, have experienced no side effects.
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.
