BP Says:


My husband is currently taking 2 shots of Lovenox a day. I believe each is 125mg? He went to his hematologist the other day and it was found that his platelets are decreasing. Could Lovenox cause this? I really hope not because they state since he was on Coumadin/Warfarin for more than 20 years, that the Coumadin no longer provided the effects necessary to keep his blood thinned out to prevent blood clots.

Yes, Lovenox has been known to cause that, he may require a dosage adjustments, or to try a different medication.

Does he also watch his diet? While on a blood thinner, he should stay away from dark leafy greens, such as spinach, that contain a lot of vitamin K.

Some other medications, and foods, may also cause additional blood thinning. Is he taking anything else?
