This medication is used to prevent blood clots from forming because of a certain irregular heartbeat (atrial fibrillation). Preventing these blood clots helps to reduce the risk of a stroke. Apixaban is also approved in Canada to prevent blood clots from forming in your legs or lungs after hip or knee replacement surgery. Apixaban is an anticoagulant that works by blocking certain clotting proteins in your blood.Enoxaparin is used to prevent and treat harmful blood clots. Preventing harmful blood clots helps to reduce the risk of a stroke or heart attack. This medication helps keep your blood flowing smoothly by lowering the activity of clotting proteins in the blood. Enoxaparin is sometimes commonly referred to as a "blood thinner," but its more correct term is "anticoagulant." It is a type of heparin. Conditions which increase your risk of developing blood clots include certain types of surgeries (e.g., knee or hip replacement), long periods of being immobile, certain types of heart attack, and a specific type of chest pain called unstable angina. For some medical conditions, enoxaparin may be used in combination with other "blood thinners."

i was put on enoxaparin after an intolerance to coumadin. i find this drug very effective. of course sticking myself once a day is an inconvenience, but the benifits greatly outweigh the small amount of pain.
