Heparin: Plain Heparin and Lovenox (enoxaparin) (lmw heparin) can both cause easy bruising and bleeding, even hemorrhage, decrease in normal platelet numbers, bone thinning - scary stuff - but usually are very safe. The trick is never to use them without a clear benefit to outweigh the risks, and always monitored under a specialist care.
