Lovenox Dosage

Dosing for Other Situations

If you have kidney disease, your healthcare provider may recommend a lower-than-standard dosage of Lovenox. If you are taking this medication for an unapproved use (an "off-label" use), you should be aware that there are generally no clearly established dosages for such uses.
 

General Information on Taking Lovenox

Some considerations for people taking Lovenox include the following:
 
  • This medication is given as an injection just under the skin (as a subcutaneous injection) once or twice a day. In certain circumstances, it may also be given intravenously (by IV).
     
  • The injections are usually 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 Lovenox (see How to Give Lovenox Injections for more details).
     
  • Do not inject this medication into a muscle. It should be injected into the fat layer just under the skin.
     
  • 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.
     
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your dosage of Lovenox, please talk with your healthcare provider, nurse, or pharmacist.
