Arixtra Injection

A healthcare provider may prescribe Arixtra® (fondaparinux sodium) to prevent and treat blood clots.
 
This medication is a type of blood thinner and comes in the form of an injection that is given once a day. It is given subcutaneously, which means it is injected just under the skin.
 
Arixtra injections are typically given in the fatty layer on the abdomen (the "stomach" area). If you are in a hospital, a healthcare provider will probably administer the injection. However, you may be sent home with this medication, in which case you or a caregiver must administer the injections. Make sure your healthcare provider shows you exactly how to inject Arixtra.
 
Do not inject this medication into a muscle. For this drug to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. You may be increasing your risk for serious problems if you stop taking it too soon.
