Nothing in particula: You will not require a special diet while taking enoxaparin injections. If you for some reason take large amounts of herbal supplements, some can affect the ability of your blood to clot, but most people do not consume significant amounts of garlic, gensing, or gingko.

You can eat greens: While on Lovenox (enoxaparin) you can eat as is your usual diet. Contrary to warfarin, Lovenox (enoxaparin) is not affected by eating food that is rich in vitamin K. Although you can eat greens with warfarin as well, management of therapeutic target is difficult, because of fluctuation in peoples intake of vitamin K rich foods.
