These studies revealed no evidence of teratogenicity or embryo-fetal toxicity. In a trial comparing Fragmin 5, IU once daily to Fragmin 2, IU once daily in patients undergoing surgery for malignancy, the incidence of bleeding reactions was 4.

The most commonly reported adverse reactions are hematoma at the injection site and hemorrhagic complications. No adverse effects on the breastfed infant have been reported.

Treatment in both groups was continued for up to 9 days postoperatively.

Discard any unused solution after 2 weeks. Remove the needle shield. A total of 27 8.

The benefit was maintained over the 6-month study period. Table 5 summarizes major bleeding reactions that occurred with Fragmin, heparin, and placebo in clinical trials of unstable angina and non-Q-wave myocardial infarction. In an open-label randomized study, Fragmin 5, IU administered once daily subcutaneously was compared with warfarin sodium, administered orally, in patients undergoing hip replacement surgery.

When the area around the navel or the thigh is used, using the thumb and forefinger, you must lift up a fold of skin while giving the injection. The mean frafmin of the combined groups was 71 years range 40 to 95 years. One group of patients received the frag,in dose of Fragmin 2, IU subcutaneous within 2 hours before surgery, tragmin by another dose of Fragmin 2, IU subcutaneous at least 4 hours 6. In medical patients with severely restricted mobility during acute illness, the recommended fraggmin of Fragmin is 5, IU administered by subcutaneous injection once daily.


After first penetration of the rubber stopper, store the multiple-dose vials at room temperature for up to 2 weeks. Serious adverse reactions including fatal reactions and the “gasping syndrome’ occurred in premature neonates and low-birth weight infants in the neonatal intensive care unit who received benzyl alcohol preserved medications. Inspect Fragmin prefilled syringes and vials visually for particulate matter and discoloration prior to administration.

Fragmin – FDA prescribing information, side effects and uses

Because animal reproduction studies are not always predictive of human response, this drug should be used during pregnancy only if clearly needed. Let go of the plunger and allow fragnin to move up inside the device until the entire needle is guarded. The following serious adverse reactions are described in more detail in other sections of the prescribing information.

Subcutaneous administration of doses of 5, IU twice daily of Fragmin for seven consecutive days to patients undergoing abdominal surgery did not markedly affect APTT, Platelet Factor 4 PF4ffragmin lipoprotein lipase.

The entire length of the needle should be inserted at a 45 to 90 degree angle. Pain at the injection site was reported in 4.


Peak anti-Factor Xa activity increased more or less linearly with dose over the same dose range. In patients with cancer and symptomatic venous thromboembolism, the recommended dosing of Fragmin is as follows: All pregnancies have a background risk of birth defect, loss, or other adverse outcomes.

In these patients, the Fragmin therapy begins with the initial VTE treatment cragmin continues for six months [ see Clinical Studies In the second study, a total of patients were enrolled and treated; received Fragmin and received heparin. The corresponding mean disposition half-lives were 1. fravmin

Discontinue their use prior to dalteparin therapy whenever possible; if co-administration is essential, the patient’s clinical and laboratory status should be closely monitored [ see Drug Interactions 7 ]. In a trial ;i Fragmin 5, IU once daily to heparin 5, U twice daily, in the malignancy subgroup the incidence of bleeding reactions was dragmin.


One bleeding event hemoptysis in a patient in the Fragmin arm at Day 71 was fatal. The mean age of the study population was 68 years range 40 to 90 years and the majority of patients were white FDA alerts for all medications. Fragnin, in patients with malignancy, 2, IU of Fragmin can be administered subcutaneously 1 to 2 hours before surgery followed by 2, IU subcutaneously 12 hours later, and then 5, IU once daily postoperatively.

Dalteparin is a low molecular weight heparin with antithrombotic properties. It must not be administered by intramuscular injection.

Available for Android and iOS devices. A third multi-center, double-blind, randomized study evaluated a postoperative dosing regimen of Fragmin for thromboprophylaxis following total hip replacement surgery. Postmarketing rfagmin and literature reports have not revealed additional differences in the safety of Fragmin between elderly and younger patients.

When prescribing Fragmin multiple-dose vials in infants consider the combined daily metabolic load of benzyl alcohol from all sources including Fragmin multiple-dose vials Fragmin contains 14 mg of benzyl alcohol per mL and other drugs containing benzyl alcohol.

The follow-up extended through Day Treatment with Fragmin was pj with a 2, IU dose subcutaneously within 2 hours before surgery, followed by a 2, IU dose subcutaneously the evening of the day of fraggmin.

Bleeding can occur at any site during therapy with Fragmin. No overall differences in effectiveness were observed between these subjects and younger subjects. An excessive dosage of Fragmin Injection may lead to hemorrhagic complications. Fragmin is also indicated for the prophylaxis fargmin deep vein thrombosis DVTwhich may lead to pulmonary embolism PE:.
