Bleeding can kill: Lovenox (enoxaparin) is a blood thinner and when dosed appropriately (based on weight) is very safe and effective for its intended purposes. But anytime you take a blood thinner, there is a risk of bleeding. But the medicine is prescribed based on the idea that its benefit outweighs its risk.
