Introduction

Fragmin 10000IU Injection is known as an anticoagulant and is used to prevent harmful blood clots. It stops existing clots from getting any bigger and stops new ones from forming in the legs, lungs, brain, or heart. This can help prevent acute coronary syndrome, deep vein thrombosis, and pulmonary embolism.

Fragmin 10000IU Injection is injected by or under the supervision of a doctor. The dose and length of treatment are based on your medical condition, your response to the medicine, and what you are being treated for. It may also be based on your age and weight. It is important to keep using this medicine even if you feel no symptoms because it is preventing future harm. If you stop taking it, you could get a blood clot. While taking this medicine you should avoid doing things that increase your risk of bleeding or injury.

The most common side effect of this medicine is bleeding. It can also cause injection site reactions such as redness, swelling, and pain. Remember that a severe headache could be a sign of bleeding in the brain. A severe stomach ache could be a sign of bleeding in the stomach. Bleeding can be dangerous and may not be obvious. Look out for symptoms like uncontrolled bleeding gums and inform your doctor.

Before using this medicine, you should tell your doctor if you have high blood pressure, diabetes, or have had a recent stroke. You should not take this medicine if you have any current bleeding. Some medicines should not be used with Fragmin 10000IU Injection. Tell your doctor what else you are taking to make sure it is safe. If you have low body weight, you may be at increased risk of bleeding, and drinking alcohol can increase the risk of stomach bleeding.

Benefits of Fragmin Injection

In Treatment and prevention of Blood clots

Fragmin 10000IU Injection prevents new blood clots from forming and prevents the existing ones from getting bigger. It works by blocking a substance in the body which is involved in blood clotting. Thus it helps your blood flow smoothly throughout the body. This can help reduce damage caused by clots in your lungs (pulmonary embolism), brain (stroke), heart (heart attack), or other blood vessels (thrombosis). It can also be used to prevent clots from forming after surgery, for example, to replace a knee or hip joint. Although it does not “dissolve” blood clots, it can prevent them from getting bigger so your body can dissolve them over time. It can also make it less likely that parts of a clot will break off and travel to other parts of the body.

Side effects of Fragmin Injection

Most side effects do not require any medical attention and disappear as your body adjusts to the medicine. Consult your doctor if they persist or if you’re worried about them
