|2||Prevent clots during pregnancy||First two months, no problem. Except for the occasional bruise, and burning sensation as medicine was being injected. After that, woke up one morning, belly and thighs covered in red, itchy, raised welts. Absolutely horrible. Doctors prescribed benadryl ,then switched meds to lovenox. Now, a week later, still no relief.||F||33||2 months |
FRAGMIN (DALTEPARIN SODIUM): Dalteparin is used to treat and prevent harmful blood clots. Preventing harmful blood clots 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. Dalteparin is a type of heparin, and works as an anticoagulant (commonly called a "blood thinner"). Conditions that increase your risk of developing blood clots include certain types of surgeries (such as hip replacement or abdominal surgery), long periods of being in one position (immobile), certain types of heart attack, and a certain type of chest pain called unstable angina. For some medical conditions, dalteparin may be used in combination with other "blood thinners." Dalteparin may also be used to treat and prevent clots from coming back in patients with cancer.
