Common Questions and Answers about Lovenox in pill form


147172 tn?1226761778 Heparin and Lovenox are the same thing. I'm not sure if they come in pill form. I thikn Heparin is the generic form of Lovenox. There are 2 types of the blood clotting disorder I have; genetic and inherited. Genetic is more serious and it means that either one or both of my parents have it. They haven'tbeen tested yet. Inherited means you only get it when you're pregnant. The shot, believe it or not, weren't that bad.
567488 tn?1244744266 It obviously is not mentioned in my file??? I was in today for BW/US - a nurse called me back with the results (she is a regular nurse and NOT IVF...??..) - Est=179/Proj=.3/LH=4/FSH= 9 - 19.3 follicle I called back immediately since I missed the call when she left a message. When I called the front desk back to talk to an IVF nurse, I was told to leave it in the IVF mailbox.
886824 tn?1253740254 Factor V Leiden is the name of a specific mutation that results in thrombophilia, or an increased tendency to form abnormal blood clots in blood vessels. People who have the Factor V Leiden mutation are at somewhat higher than average risk for a type of clot that forms in veins, such as the deep veins of the legs (deep venous thrombosis), or a clot that travels through the bloodstream and lodges in the lungs (pulmonary embolism).
205230 tn?1237408793 I had a BFN on my first cycle, maybe b/c we did PGD and ICSI and some belive that can damage the embryo in some form, they were tranfer on day 5 Blastocyst and were 2 grade A. Pretty hard to believe why it did work. This time we did not do PGD on the embryos and they were conventional IVF instead of ICSI fertilized. Waiting for my Beta next week!
490183 tn?1361217553 This causes the body not to absorb folate or B9, which is essential to the fetus. It also causes blood-clots. I have had 2 m/c's in the past year, and may be on my way to a 3rd one, because I didn't start taking the right vitamins till well into my 6th week of pregnancy. I also have to take a baby aspirin for the rest of my life. I'm 7w5d today, and last Thur I went in for my 1st u/s, and I only measured 5w5d, so the baby's not developing.
Avatar n tn My teenage daughter is in the hospital with a blood clot in her arm, she was perscribed a birth control pill to control acne.
Avatar n tn I have 3 blood clots in my left leg. I was a perfectly healthy, athletic teenager until just recently. I have only been on Yasmin for 4 months, and this is the only possible answer the doctors have as to what caused the blood clots. I just got out of the hospital after 8 days... and I am now taking Coumadin and giving myself injections of Lovenox... both of which are blood thinners. Let me tell you, its been no picnic. I will be on Coumadin (which is a very dangerous drug..
432097 tn?1318552340 ) as it has to be so regulated, so he is looking into a new medicine that just got ok'd by the FDA called Xarelto. It is just like the Lovenox injections, only pill form. Since it just came out, he is trying to investigate it more and trying to actually talk to people who have taken it. He hasn't gotten far. Does anyone know about this drug, it's side effects, benefits and warnings?
Avatar n tn Also important to remember is that not all clots form in the legs. Especially in young people they can form in the blood vessels of the arm or even the heart and, because of the relative infrequency of this type of embolism, the diagnosis is apt to be missed. The pain associated with pulmonary embolism is pleuritic pain called pleurisy. There are many causes of pleurisy and consideration of causes other than an embolus would be appropriate.
338416 tn?1420049302 Jen, Sorry I didn't realize you were in the hospital, too wrapped up in my own medical woes, or I would have sent get well wishes, which now are glad you're better wishes. I'm glad you feel well enough to return to work already. Take it easy and take care of yourself.
311310 tn?1214442997 The mediations she's taking right now.. are Traceva(chemo), Lovenox, oxycotin ( 40mg in the morning and night) percocet in between like every 2-3 hrs anywhere from 15-20mg. She is in a tremendous amount of pain. Just this past week she started having other problems with her throat/voice. She sounds horse ( she thinks the cancer is pressing up against her voice box ( she's at the drs now) ) when she coughs its sounds kinda distant in her chest-- I'm sorry idk how else to explain that.
Avatar n tn Anybody with the MTHFR gene mutation CAN NOT break down folic acid, we lack the enzymes required for the methylation process. You could be taking a very large dose and your body still will not turn it in to the form we need. In order to have a healthy pregnancy you need to stay far away from synthetic folic acid in supplements and food. You need to either take folinic acid, or L-methylfolate.
770426 tn?1235065089 I have been on coumadin for 4 year every time I get on and off for medical procedures (switching form lovenox to coumadin) I get severe migraines. Lately I have been getting aura with them too. I definitely think it is the coumadin. I never had these problems before.
405614 tn?1329147714 If you have any insurance, you aren't eligible for their help, even if your insurance won't pay for their medication. They will assist you in an appeal, but the guy I talked to admitted that it wasn't worth my time and effort, because without a proper diagnosis, it won't do any good. I called in for one more refill today, and will ask my PCP next week about Ritalin or Adderall; my ms neuro suggested Ritalin if I couldn't afford Provigil.

Avatar n tn My doctor has advised that I resign myself to not having any children in the future, after reading this though Im encouraged to ask for a 2nd opinion. I live in the Uk and they have no idea why I had a stroke other than that I was on the pill. I still havent seen a neurologist and have now started suffering from migraine.I already have a 5 year old little girl but always wanted more children in future!
Avatar n tn hospital and was sent home on lovenox shots until coumadin level got above 2(inr). In the hopspital I found out I am factor v Leiden (clotting tendency) and was immediatly taken off birth control pills. I have a 4 year old and a 1 year old that I delivered via c- section and feel blessed and also suprised i never clotted during pregnancy or after abdominal surgery. I have not been told I can't have more kids, however I would have to switch from coumadin to lovenox injections.
398459 tn?1262189744 I have to take a baby aspirin a day, extra folic acid, and after retrieval start Lovenox injections ( a form of heparin) AND if we get preggo - then lovenox injections every day for the entire pregnancy---yippee..... I can't remember all the specifics of mine...I will have to dig out my paperwork to check and let you know..... Tijuana - what a great feeling!!!! love bosses and company's who do stuff like that!!!

Avatar f tn ) The Rx was cheaper! Keep us posted! We are here for you.
439903 tn?1380141482 But, I digress, showed him my paperwork, he asked me a zillion questions and then told me I too (just like you Sam and Juana) will be in Lovenox after ER. He basically said that univerally, women that have had multiple chemicals or m/c should ALL be on it. And that many times when ppl think it's a chromosomal issue, its a really a clotting issue.. even if it's not picked up in blood tests, that's what it is. So..
Avatar n tn 2 (twice daily) along with my Prenatal, fish oil, and a low dose asprin (pre-pregnancy). Once pregnant, I started Lovenox shots in addition to my daily pill regiment. Doc said my baby measured 8.5 weeks on week 10. I get test results back in 3 weeks to determine the cause of my miscarriage. All i want right now is to get pregnant again. I'm scared i'm going to be facing more months of infertility and possibly more m/c.
Avatar n tn This also comes in pill form and I did ask for these in pill form and was given 15 pills only. 5 days x 3 a day and that was it. NO REFILLS.... I am not sure if Torodol will be contraindicated with Lovenox or Heparin which we hippers and knee-ers nned for surgery to prevent blood clots but you may want to ask your doctor about Torodol. I think I am toooooo old to even think about having anything done now about this Sprhinture problems.

Avatar n tn They did the ultra sound and all they could find was the gestational sac, No Baby! I was told that it could just be to early (5 weeks). The following Friday I was back in the ER and they could only see the gestational sac and the yolk, still no baby! Now at six weeks there is still no baby seen and my doctor said it may still be to early but I read and heard that there should already be a heartbeat and they can't even find my baby!!!!!!!!!
1704915 tn?1357604854 I also formed a blood clot in my liver so now I am giving myself Lovenox shots in the stomac every morning. I go to a doctor on March 9th to start coumadin pills. Because of this I had to stop my birth control. They believe it could have contributed to why I got the blood clot during surgery. I am going more frequently (which is great from never going at all or feeling like your being ripped apart when you go) but because I am still on the liquid diet the bm's are also liquid.
1244100 tn?1385909128 With this cycle, after retrieval, I will be taking low dose aspirin (aka baby aspirin), and Lovenox (a form of heparin). I already take extra folic acid. I started the FSH injections (375 IU) and Repronex (75 IU) last night. I feel like a pin cushion already.... Welcome to All!! Here's hoping and wishing and praying and sprinkling all kinds of dust to all.....
