Call your prescriber: Lovenox is a strong prescription blood thinner. It can cause spontaneous bleeding. You should notify your physician regarding this headache as it could represent a much more serious medical problem

Be careful : Good that you asked, lovenox is an anticoagulant (blood thinner) and any any drug in this category would interact with other medicines, unfortunately, most severe headache medicines would contain aspirin or NSAIDs, both can interact with blood thinners and increase the risk of bleeding. You can try acetaminphen and caffeine preparations, as plain Excedrin, read the labels carefully, good luck
