Lovenox Vial Description

If you are undergoing a knee or hip replacement, your surgeon may recommend a prescription for Lovenox Vial to be administered through a vein or just under your skin in order to prevent harmful blood clots so your risk of a heart attack or stroke is reduced.

The active ingredient in Lovenox Vial is Enoxaparin Sodium, a type of heparin with a lower molecular weight so there is less need for constant monitoring. Any surgery that can impair your ability to be mobile may increase your risk of a blood clot and the complications they can cause.

How Lovenox Vial Reduces the Risk of a Clot

Once injected by a healthcare professional, Lovenox Vial goes to work by blocking the action of factor Xa (ten a) and factor IIa, two of twelve clot-promoting proteins in your blood. This reduces the chance of a clot causing deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and possibly resulting in a pulmonary embolism (PE). If you are going to be immobilized for any length of time, your doctor may instruct you on how to inject Lovenox Vial yourself at home.

Conditions Treated by Lovenox Vial

Deep vein thrombosis is when blood clots form in veins deep in a muscle, usually in your thigh or lower leg. If a piece of this clot breaks away and travels to an artery in your lungs, it could cause a blockage that stops proper blood flow and cause a pulmonary embolism.

Your doctor may also recommend Lovenox Vial if you are experiencing unstable angina. The symptoms of chest pain, sweating, fatigue, and dizziness resemble those of a heart attack and can even result in a heart attack if treatment is not administered. Angina attacks can be due to poor oxygen and blood flow through the coronary vessels of your heart due to a fatty build-up that has narrowed your arteries and is now starving your heart of the nutrients it needs to pump efficiently. Lovenox Vial helps to dilate your arteries so your heart is not straining to pump blood to your other tissues and organs.

Before You Use Lovenox Vial

Inform your doctor if you are pregnant, trying to conceive, or are breast-feeding before you start Lovenox Vial to know whether your unborn or nursing baby may be at risk. Explain other medical conditions you have to your doctor and list all OTC and Rx drugs you are taking, including herbal remedies and vitamin or dietary supplements, as combining some medications can cause unwanted side effects or change how a drug will work in your body.

Precautions for Lovenox Vial

Do not use this medication if you have any allergies to pork products, heparin, or benzyl alcohol. Lovenox can make you bleed easier especially with a history of heart infections, stomach bleeding, recent surgery, or an inherent or disease related bleeding disorder.

Refrain from driving or taking part in any unsafe activities that could result in being injured as you are more likely to bleed longer than usual while Enoxaparin Sodium in your system.
