Lovenox does not but Lovenox can cause a very serious side effect involving your platelets that Coumadin (warfarin) doesn't. Lovenox is expenisve, Coumadin (warfarin) is much cheaper. Both can cause bleeding. If that happens, the effects of Lovenox reverse faster.
Route of administrat. Lovenox is an injection and is very fast acting. Coumadin (warfarin) is a tablet and is usually given for longer term anticoagulation.
