 2  Blood Clot Hair Loss, Bruising and bumps at injection sites For what it's worth, I experienced hair loss with Coumadin too. On Arixtra, when I would accidently cut myself, I would still clot and my weight fluxuates between 108-110lbs, so the dosage should have been optimal to overdose for my size. I didn't get another blood clot, so I can't say it didn't do it's job though.... F 24 8 months

ARIXTRA  (FONDAPARINUX SODIUM):  Fondaparinux is used to treat serious blood clots in the legs and/or lungs. It is usually used with another "blood thinner" medication (warfarin). If untreated, blood clots can travel to the lungs, heart, or brain, causing serious (possibly fatal) breathing problems, heart attack, or stroke. This drug may also be used to prevent blood clots after certain surgeries with an increased risk of blood clots (such as hip fracture, abdominal, knee/hip replacement). Fondaparinux is known as a "blood thinner" (anticoagulant). It is a drug similar to heparin that works by blocking certain natural substances in the blood that cause clotting.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
