This is my second entry for Lovenox. In June 2996, I broke my hip; the subsequent surgery left me with a large blood clot in my left leg. I received Lovenox shots in the hsp. and when I left there I was put on Coumadin.
The side effects from Coumadin were more than I could handle so about six months ago the doctor put me on Lovenox.
That was fine for a while but the side effects are building up again. The exact same side effects as I had on Coumadin.
I get headaches right after the injection followed be overwhelming tiredness. At first it helped to get the injection at night before bed. But now the headaches are becoming continuous, and I’m falling asleep all the time. I started kee[ing a sleep log and realized I was asleep more then awake.
Also there is hair loss and lack of appetite. What I do try to eat taste like cardboard.
I went back to the doctor and he wants to put me back on Coumadin. I tried to tell him my side effects but he just doesn’t believe me.
This weekend I spent two days without a shot. I didn’t feel much different yesterday, but today…I woke up at 7AM. (I had been sleeping until 11 or 12noon). It is 9:30PM and I feel great. I ate 3 meals. (I was down to 1 meal a day and that was forced).
I just can’t keep going on like this. I tried to get the doctor to try alternative medicines but he says Coumadin and Lovenox were all he could offer me.
NOTE: One of the listed side effects is Osteoporosis I already have osteoporosis.
