I'm 28, after car accident had DVT in calf. Taking lovenox (enoxaparin). If I continue my normal activity level, will staying mobile raise risk of clot traveling?

Slight chance: DVT can be a major cause of concern of pulmonary embolization. If on lovenox (enoxaparin) and symptoms of swelling and pain subside then one continues on anticoagulant until symptoms totally subside. If there is any question of embolization one must consider using inferior vena cava filter to prevent complications of pulmonary embolization which can be serious.l ...Read more

Temp off Warfarin and on Lovenox (enoxaparin) injections twice a day. Drank on warfarin without issue, can I still have a few beers on the lovenox (enoxaparin)?

Temp off Warfarin and on Lovenox (enoxaparin) injections twice a day.  Drank on warfarin without issue, can I still have a few beers on the lovenox (enoxaparin)?

No: and I would ask why you aren't directing this question at the prescribers? I am sure if you asked your doctor whether it's ok to drink on Warfarin, s/he would tell you NO in no uncertain terms. Even moderate drinking impairs the metabolism of warfarin, often making you require higher doses, which is if you then lower your drinking may cause a high INR and bleeding risk. It is DANGEROUS. Stop. ...Read more
