Buy Lovenox brand or generic Enoxaparin prescription drug from Canada
Why is Lovenox prescribed?
Enoxaparin sodium (Lovenox) is prescribed for the treatment or prevention of deep vein thrombosis (blood clots in the leg). It is also used in the prevention of complications in patients with angina (chest pain) or myocardial infarction (heart attacks).
What does it do?
Deep vein thrombosis is a condition wherein there is a formation of a blood clot, usually in the veins of your legs. It can happen after surgery, an accident, or when you are on bed rest. Lovenox belongs to a drug class called low molecular weight heparins and it works by inhibiting clot formation in the blood.
How should I use it?
Lovenox and its generic equivalents are currently available in 40mg/0.4ml syringes. It should be injected under the skin but do not inject it into the muscle. It can also be given intravenously as an infusion.
Wash your hands and the injection site thoroughly. Inject Lovenox at different areas each time and do not inject it in the same area twice. Throw away used Lovenox syringes and do not reuse them. Always follow your doctor’s instructions when using Lovenox.
The dosage strength depends on every patient’s condition and the doctor’s prescription. It is imperative that you do not self-medicate and only use this drug after consulting with your doctor or pharmacist to determine the best dosage and dosing schedule for the treatment of your condition.
What if I missed a dose?
The desired effects of prescribed medications will only be achieved if used properly. As much as possible, strictly follow your doctor’s prescribed dosing schedule. If you miss a dose, inject it immediately and adjust the time of your next dose depending on your doctor’s advice. Never inject two doses at the same time just to make up for your missed dose.

Inform your doctor about all the medications you are taking, your current and previous medical history, and any allergic reactions to Lovenox or any other ingredients included in the manufacture of this medication.
