Fragmin Drug Interactions

Other Medications That "Thin" the Blood
Other medications that have anticoagulant, antiplatelet, or thrombolytic effects may increase the risk of bleeding with Fragmin. Always check with your healthcare provider before combining Fragmin with any such medications. Sometimes, these medications (especially thrombolytics, aspirin, or warfarin) are combined intentionally with Fragmin.
 

Additional Information and Notable Exceptions

Fragmin does not interact with vitamin K or foods rich in vitamin K. People often mistakenly assume that it does, as warfarin (Coumadin®, Jantoven®), an oral anticoagulant, interacts with vitamin K. Of course, you must still follow the usual dietary restrictions if you are taking warfarin and Fragmin together. However, if you are taking just Fragmin, there are no dietary restrictions.
 
Fragmin does not interact with acetaminophen (Tylenol®). Therefore, acetaminophen is usually the preferred over-the-counter pain or fever medication for people using Fragmin.
 
It should be noted that herbal medications may interact unpredictably with Fragmin, perhaps increasing the risk of bleeding or possibly making Fragmin less effective. Therefore, check with your healthcare provider before combining any herbal medication with Fragmin.
