Where to donate lovenox

After searching quite a bit, I finally found an organization that will take leftover Lovenox for donation: World Medical Relief (worldmedicalrelief.org). I wanted to post this here because it was so difficult finding a place to donate these, and hopefully this will help other people donate (rather than destroy) their left-over Lovenox. ## Hi Corie, Thank you so much for sharing this important information and resource here. Leftover medication that costs hundreds if not thousands of dollars are constantly in jeopardy of being washed down the toilet (causing environmental concerns), or otherwise being improperly disposed of due to a lack of knowledge and information provided by the pharmacists who dispense it; let alone finding a place like you have. It is my opinion that these medical do...

side effects of lovenox

I have been on lovenox for 5 days. I am beginning to hate this stuff. I take my shots at 9am and pm. In the morning it seems like I get about 30 minutes after and I am ready to lay down. I also get chills and feel like I am paralyzed.. It makes my legs and arms very heavy to move. I am typing this after my worse night thus far... Do hot my pj's are wet yet if I uncover then I get a chill. This just sucks. I use a compression sock during the day but it makes my legs very itchy and of course I don't want to scratch. ## Hello, Wayne! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problem that you're having. Those can be typical side effects of Lovenox and most blood thinners/anticlotting agents, there have been many posts complaining about similar issues and some people have even ha...

Swollen Feet

I started with swollen right feet 15 and by age 22 my feet other feet start getting swollen first I was told it was lymphedema and have been using compression stocking since. Yet i get infections on my feet on and off. When I was pregnant a year ago I was told I had blood clots and was on Lovenox throughout my pregnancy. He is now a year old and for the past six months i have been having continuos infections on my feet. Every month I get an infection where my feet gets red, swollen, sensitive and hurts. I continuously have to be antibiotics to fight these infections and now i am worried about what could be causing these infections. Please advise. ## I have minor swelling in the sole of my right foot. Will phlogam help remove the swelling from that area?

Bruising from Lovenox injections

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...

auto injector pen with Lovenox

About 14 yrs ago while pregnant I had to use Lovenox. My doctor then ordered it with an injector pen. I must have thrown the pen away thinking I would not need it again. Since then the pharmacists say there is not such a device for Lovenox now and the have not heard of one in existence.. Has anyone else used an injector pen? If so, how and where did you get it? ## From what I could gather, apparently the auto inj. pen is like having a "pre-filled" syringe. It's described as being a pen-like device that keeps the needle point shielded before administering the dose. I've seen similar products go by the name of "autoject 2"...and if you google "auto inj.", there are also a number of sites who offer what I would imagine to be comparable alternatives to what y...

Lovenox Leftover

What can I do with 8 boxes of this expensive drug? ## The only thing I can suggest is taking it into your doctor or to your pharmacist and let them handle it. Some states have a program where you can turn in left-over medications and they are then provided to people without insurance at a very steep discount. Otherwise, I really can't help, since giving them to someone else is considered illegal. Have you tried contacting a pharmacy to ask? ## I would like to look into a way to get them donated...I am going through Chemo and today they found a blood clot and prescribed Lovenox. I then got the call from the pharmacy that my prescription limit has been met and I have to pay out of pocket which is not possible for me...please don't dispose of them... ## I'd like to help, but I ...

Alternative oral meds to lovenox...

are there any? I think that having to give yourself shots is pretty barbaric and think that before a doctor puts a person on warfarin the patient should be made aware of this gross and creepy shot deal when you are taken off warfarin for a procedure or surgery...when are the doctors going to bring out the leeches? I am SO MAD that I have no alternative to these stupid shots...I am needle PHOBIC which all my doctors knew about and YET here I am having to do TWO shots a day into my stomach!!! Are they insane? Sadistic? What is with the medical community??? ## Hello, Lucy Lou! How are you doing? I'm sorry that you're so upset. However, if there were an alternative, you wouldn't have to do the shots, your doctor would have provided you with the other option. There just aren'...
