: : I am a nurse who gives lots of Lovenox at doses between 30mg-100mg, usually twice a day. The dosing is determined by your doctor based on whether you have a clot or they are trying to prevent a clot, your weight, and lab results.

: : I am sure your doctor can explain to you why he is using the dosage regimen that he is.

: : : I've read that Lovenox is 30 mL, once a day, and other dosage levels at 40 mL, twice a day.

: : : Can anyone clue me in? What have you taken, and did you have favorable results, i.e., immune factors stay suppressed and at what dosage levels?

: : : Thanks for your help. There is much to keep track of in understanding the Lovenox information.

: Hi, I'm 20 yearsold and currently 28 weeks pregnant with my second child. A week ago I went into A-Fib that lasted for 14 hours. Eventually the Dr converted my heart rhythm using Ibutilide (Corvert). He put me on Lovenox. I take an injection twice a day at 60 mg each. This is to prevent a clot caused by the A-Fib. My OB said it is safe for use during pregnancy. From what I gather this is a drug that is not used very often. I ended up having to get it through a home health agency. It's good to know that I'm not alone. Jackie

I am overweight, with a stubborn clotting disorder. I am pregnant & taking 110mg Lovenox every 12 hours. Before I was on Coumadin at 10 mg daily, also considered a high dose, but I guess that's what works for me. What is scary is that my dose was rising, I was resisting the Coumadin...It's all scary. I am covered w bruises from my injections, it was the same when the nurses did them, so it's not my technique. Email me if you'd like to chat. [email protected]
