I have a friend adding me if there is any way to prevent the bruising all around her body she has been getting (non-trauma related and not at the injection sites) while on Lovenox. Any advice?

If she's experiencing bruising, without having bumped into anything or fallen, then she needs to consult her doctor. Her blood may be thinning too much and he dose or medication may need to be adjusted.

Other side effects, as listed by the FDA, are administration site soreness, easy bruising and headache.

Is there anything else I can help with?

When you take it out to use, flick it so the air bubble is near the plunger, opposite the needle. Do not try to squirt the air bubble out. When you inject it make sure it is vertical, needle down. They package them with a little air bubble so when the meds go in so does the air bubble, the idea is so none of the drug seeps out the injection site. Your bruising will reduce dramatically!
