Do i need to inject clexane everydays till my leg is ok? What happen if I do it once per 2 days?

Every day: I am assuming you are on clexane (called Lovenox (enoxaparin) in the us) because of a blood clot in your leg. You have to use it daily. If you delay a day, the clot can become bigger. Worse, it might break off and lodge in your lung, which can be deadly. Please call your doctor about this. Good luck. ...Read more

Clexane: Clexane (known as Lovenox in the U.S.) is the brand name for enoxaparin. This medication is commonly used during pregnancy. Some doctors will switch back to unfractionated Heparin close to delivery since Heparin has a completely effective antidote, while enoxaparin's antidote is less reliable. Obviously, the OB doesn't want anyone to bleed excessively during delivery. ...Read more

Clexane: like other injectable anti-coagulants (anti-clotting) medications often do cause a small amount of local bleeding uder the skin which forms a "hematoma" (mass) which evolves into a hard mass. Apply ICE fore the first 48 hours then HEAT may help resolve this. BTW some external bruising may be noted! Hope this helps! Dr Z ...Read more

It is dosed by mg/kg and given once or twice per day. However, administration is usually 0.2 or 0.4 mL subcutaneously. Going from 0.2 to 0.4 is doubling the dose.

Am taking clexane injection while pregnant and my abdominal area became solid.. Is there any other place I can take the injection in?

Am taking clexane injection while pregnant and my abdominal area became solid.. Is there any other place I can take the injection in?

Clexane = Enoxaparin: Clexane appears to be a brand of Enoxaparin sold outside the States. It is a special form of heparin which is a blood thinner used to prevent blood clots. It's not clear what you mean by "my abdominal area became solid". Just the injection site? or whole abdomen? Pain? Redness? Regardless, you need to chat w/your high-risk obstetrician (maternal-fetal medicine specialist) regarding this situation. ...Read more
