Lovenox vs Warfarin

LovenoxLovenox WarfarinWarfarin
LOVENOX can help reduce the risk of developing DVT blood clots, which may lead to pulmonary embolism, in patients undergoing abdominal surgery, hip- or knee-replacement surgery, or in acutely ill medical patients with severely restricted mobility.Warfarin is used to treat blood clots (such as in deep vein thrombosis-DVT or pulmonary embolus-PE) and/or to prevent new clots from forming in your body. Preventing harmful blood clots helps to reduce the risk of a stroke or heart attack. Conditions that increase your risk of developing blood clots include a certain type of irregular heart rhythm (atrial fibrillation), heart valve replacement, recent heart attack, and certain surgeries (such as hip/knee replacement).

I am having constant diahrrea.

Started taking Lovenox twice a day after knee surgery to prevent clots. Only the first injection was difficult. (I just couldn't stab myself but now I've got my method down pat) Some hurt, some don't. Most result in long lasting deep purple brusies. About 30% give me a lump. I am OK with this medication and glad my use is short term.

Needles were small and easy to use. Only side effect was the bruising on abdomen and stinging of medication after injection.

I had multiple PE's after a rough winter of coughing and pain in my lungs. I could not take deep breaths and was given steroids and antibiotics on 2 different trips to Dr. because I wasn't getting better. These of course still did not work so my Dr. thought he better check me for blood clots. Yep, I had plenty in my lungs along with some dead lung tissue due to damage. I was in the hospital a week ...

I take the drug because I have been told that I have to - I have had two episodes of DVT/PEs and am now on the drug 'for life'.

The only problem with the medication is that it has been difficult to keep it regulated. It is always too high or too low. I have had lumbar surgery since being on the warifin. I was off for a few weeks and now it's difficult getting back regulated again.
