NO!!!!!!!!: Alcohol can enhance the effects of any anticoagulant drug, and can increase the chance of dangerous and even life-threatening bleeding. The person to ask these questions of is your doctor, who needs to know about your drinking history in order to treat you safely and effectively, and your pharmacist who is dispensing your medications. If you have an alcohol problem, get help for it. ...Read more
My mother received lovenox (enoxaparin) for a blood clot three months ago. She can still barely walk and her leg is very numb. In three months she hasn't gotten better. Will this eventually clear up?

I'm 28, no past hx. Do not smoke, no birth control. Have DVT in calf after car accident. How likely is it to get another blood clot while on lovenox (enoxaparin)?
Not likely: Possible, but not likely. This was a provoked DVT and the treatment is usually for 3 months. If you notice skin changes and or new onset leg swelling while on Lovenox (enoxaparin) let your doc know as soon as possible. Heparin induced thrombocytopenia is a rare complication of heparin or low molecular weight heparin treatment that may result in venous or arterial thrombosis. ...Read more
10 weeks pregnant. I am high risk due to a large blood clot in my left leg in my groin. I'm on lovenox (enoxaparin) 2x a day. Is it ok to be sexually active?
I have a broken leg and missed my daily enoxaparin shot, for a whole 24 hours. Could a blood clot have formed in that time? I'm very worried.
Yes and No, probably:
No! No one definitely knows.
Traditionally teaching is blood clots develop between 5-14 days. An injury to veins, or prolonged immobility from the injury can cause it. Drinking enough fluids, exercise your toes & knee/hip & breathing exercises help.
Being on enoxaparin but just missing a dose will probably not cause you a clot.
Better to see your doc, who can examine you. ...Read more
After 3rd blood clot in lower left calf (dvt) resolved, my INR is still low after over 2 mos on enoxaparin injections twice daily- why?
Enoxaparin: Why do you check inr when you are on enoxaparin? Inr is not something to see or check when you are on enoxaparin. That level has nothing to do with enoxaparin. If you are also on warfarin/coumadin along with enoxaparin and your inr is still low now for 2 months- then you have to discuss with your doctor- perhaps the dose of Coumadin has to be increased and you should be more careful with diet etc. ...Read more
Blood clot removal: Blood clots in general are removed naturally from the body. The body has a system of clotting as well as a system to prevent too much clotting. Whenever a clot is formed in the body over time the body will naturally reabsorb it. Sometimes doctors give medication to prevent the blood from being able to clot easily. ...Read more

No: Aspirin is used to prevent the formation of blood clots through the inhibition of aggregation of cells (platelets) that are part of the clot. Once the clot is formed, Aspirin is not very effective in dissolving it. This is because the clot has material incorporated in it that does not respond to the action of aspirin. ...Read more

How often should someone who is on wafarin for the first time to disolve blood clots at home normally go to have their pt/inr level checked?
Warfarin: Protocols sometimes differ, but I ask my patients to check their inr 2x weekly until we get a good level 2 times, then once weekly a few more times, then once every 2 weeks a few more times, and then once monthly minimum. I increase the frequency again if I have to make any dose adjustments. The accp just recommended that stable patients can be checked every 3 months but I think that's too long. ...Read more

"Blocked Pipes": Blood contains proteins which cause the blood to congeal when outside of blood vessels. This can be life-saving following trauma but can be life-threatening if the clotting mechanism is activated inside a blood vessel, leading to the obstruction of flow to the brain (stroke), heart muscles (mi), or lungs (pulmonary emboli), to name a few. Rx hinges on opening the blockage asap+/-blood thinners. ...Read more
