 4  Multiple lung pulmonary embolisms I was recently put on this medication while admitted into the ER following a surgery. I would say I haven't been on it long to know all side effects, but I have intense anxiety, burning shoulders during anxiety, daily headache and it stings for a few minutes just after injecting the medication. I am on this twice a day. Some areas upper of the stomach hurt worse. I also feel my appetite has been suppressed some but I'm in no way complaining about weight loss. I have Gastroparesis and my stomach doesn't work to properly absorb or metabolize medication therefore this shot is what I'm taking instead of an oral medication. F 39 0 months

40 2X D
 2  Factor V Liden & history of DVTs when I first started taking it I had tachycardia and high BP and was in the hospital for a week, they said it was because of the fillers and switched me to brand name (Lovenox) I have been on it 7 yrs now, and this has ruined my quality of life! I have severe dizziness and balance issues. I often get faint. I have terrible sweats and heat intolerances. it effects my vision. I get week long headaches. swelling and fluid retention in my feet, legs & hands along with heaviness. weakness and terrible fatigue. TERRIBLE brain fog. anxiety. stuffed nose. low urine output, hyperlypedima. huge hematomas on my stomach. tingling all over worse at higher doses. blood in urine. taste of blood in my mouth. hair loss, dose related. because of all the side effects I have lowered my dose, so far no clots. I'm going to start taking it once a day at night instead of twice to hopefully sleep through the worst of the side effects since I can be more active during the day. if not I'll lower it again! I have 2 brain aneurysms and even being on it makes me nervous. over time symptoms have gotten worse so I guess my body is just not tolerating it anymore. we weren't meant to be on this that long no information for life long use.

 3  DVT and IVC 90% occlusion Iím having fevers , anxiety, enormous bruising on leg that has only gotten bigger, big bump on my belly. I can take some bruising, but all this other stuff is ridiculous. I panic sometimes thinking this will really hurt me Make it in pill form, Iím sure it works, but something has got to give seeing all the people like myself having such terrible experiences. Iíve never encountered any drug that would cause all this. M 44 10 days
 3  History if pulmonary embolism & dvt The injections burn like a bee sting. I can not stand longer than 20 min without feeling faint or queasy and I need to sit or lay down. I had zero side effects on oral coumadin. So far on Lovenox, I feel horrible. Migraines, dizzy, and the injections are horrible. It burns like crazy for up to five minutes after the injection. F 33 40 days
30x 1d
 3  Multiple DVT/PE reaccurance Bruising on stomach. Knots and build up of medicine that eventually went away. Nausea after taking the shot. I am taking lovenox the rest of my life. It may not be ideal but when I was taking warfarin I lost my memory, hair, and I had a hard time forming sentences. I'd rather take lovenox than be on rat poison. F 21 5 weeks

 1  Large Pulmonary Saddle Embolism Massive hematoma on belly, covering left to right side and 6" wide. Extreme nausea, headaches, dizziness, stomach aches. After 4 months I am still, daily, effected by this medication with severe stomach upsets. Nobody in the hospital asked me how I react to medicines, was never given any options. Nobody noticed how sick Lovenox was making me. The pharmaceutical company should have a law suit filed against them. F 8 days

LOVENOX (PRESERVATIVE FREE)  (ENOXAPARIN SODIUM):  Enoxaparin is used to prevent and treat harmful blood clots. This helps to reduce the risk of a stroke or heart attack. This medication helps keep your blood flowing smoothly by lowering the activity of clotting proteins in the blood. Enoxaparin is an anticoagulant, also known as a "blood thinner." It is a type of heparin. Conditions which increase your risk of developing blood clots include certain types of surgeries (such as knee/hip replacement, abdominal), long periods of being immobile, certain types of heart attack, and a specific type of chest pain called unstable angina. For some medical conditions, enoxaparin may be used in combination with other "blood thinners."   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
