Why is it necessary to have regular doses of enoxaparin after stroke?
Stroke can sometimes result in the patient becoming bedridden. Lack of mobility can lead to development of clots in the blood vessels. These clots if not broken down, can result in serious complications, for example a heart attack, or the incidence of another stroke. To avoid these complications, you need regular and monitored doses of enoxaparine.
Can I inject enoxaparin on my own?
You must not try to administer the drug on your own if you are not in practice. Your doctor or nurse can advise you on correct administration of the drug if you want to do it on your own. Make sure you follow the directions carefully as advised. Do not rub the site of injection, and in case of bruising or redness, consult the physician immediately.
Is enoxaparin safe to use in children?
Yes it is, however only when the dosage and administration is carefully adjusted and monitored by the doctor. Dosage itself is carefully designed according to the particular condition. Consult your physician.
After taking enoxaparin, I feel that I usually feel heartburn. What should I do?
Frequent sensation of heartburn can be a result of gastric ulceration, in which case you must discontinue the drug immediately. However, you must consult your physician before you discontinue.
I recently met an accident after which my leg is plastered. The doctor advised me a few exercises which I regularly do. Do I still need enoxaparine therapy?
Moderate exercises advised by the doctor are good, but are not good enough. Other than the regular physiotherapy sessions, you must continue enoxaparine therapy as well if your doctor has advised so. This is to decrease the chances of developing clots in the vessels.
While undergoing enoxaparine therapy, what are the things that I should monitor?
Keep a track of your bleeding profile. Avoid potentially risky situations that involve sharp objects. Use a soft toothbrush and waxed floss. Have your bleeding time and clotting time regularly checked, along with low molecular weight heparin assay.
Are there any side effects of enoxaparine?
Immediate side effects can include pain, swelling, redness, and bruising at the site of injection. Allergic response can also present as shortness of breath, persistent bleeding, joint pain, and stomach upset.
