LOVENOX ® alters the blood’s ability to clot. Excessive bleeding (hemorrhage), leading to death, has occurred with LOVENOX ® . Bleeding can occur at any site with LOVENOX ® use. The use of aspirin and other NSAIDs may enhance the risk of excessive bleeding. Be sure to tell all your doctors and dentist about all of the medications you are taking, including those you are taking without a prescription, such as aspirin or other NSAIDs. Also be sure to tell your doctor or dentist you are taking LOVENOX ® before any surgery is scheduled and before any new drug is taken.
Modern syringes and pen needles are intended for a single use, but many people use them for several shots. Today’s needles are very fine, and if you were to look at one under a microscope after even a single injection, you’d be surprised by how much damage it sustains. Injecting through clothing (which, contrary to medical myth, is perfectly harmless) dulls needles even more quickly. When you use a dull needle, you raise your risk of small, tearing injuries to the tissue, which in turn raises your risk of scarring. It’s also possible for small needle fragments to break off and be left behind in your skin. And of course, you’ll also be much more likely to experience bruising at the injection site if you’re using a dull needle.
