Fragmin (dalteparin sodium) is used to prevent blood clots forming in blood vessels. It is used in different conditions such as deep vein thrombosis, unstable . dalteparin sodium 10 anti-Xa units/mL injection, 10 x 1 mL syringes (PI, CMI), 2, 20, 3 dalteparin sodium 12 anti-Xa units/ mL injection, 10 x mL. To collect postmarketing data about Fragmin safety and efficacy in the treatment of deep vein thrombosis with or without pulmonary embolism in cancer patients.

In a second single-center, double-blind study of patients undergoing hip replacement surgery, Fragmin 5, IU once daily subcutaneously starting the evening before surgery, was compared with heparin 5, U subcutaneously three times a day, starting the morning of surgery.

The second postoperative dose 2, or 5, IU should occur no sooner than 24 hrs after the first dose. The estimated background risk of major birth defects and miscarriage for the indicated fraggmin is unknown. Even fragmiin these additional doses of protamine, the APTT may remain more prolonged than would usually be found following administration of unfractionated heparin. Cases of anaphylactoid reactions have been reported.

Six of the patients treated with Fragmin experienced seven major bleeding reactions. In the first study, a total of patients were enrolled and treated; received Fragmin frafmin received placebo.

When given at a dose of 5, IU once a day subcutaneously, Fragmin significantly reduced the incidence of thromboembolic reactions including verified DVT by Day 21 see Table Doses of Fragmin Injection of up to 10, anti-Factor Xa IU administered subcutaneously as a single dose or two 5, IU doses 12 hours apart to healthy subjects did not produce a significant change in platelet aggregation, fibrinolysis, fragminn global clotting tests such as prothrombin time PTthrombin time TT or APTT.

The mean age of the study population was 68 years range 40 to 90 years and the majority of patients were white First International Low Molecular Weight Heparin Reference Standard, each syringe contains either 2, fravmin, 7, 10, 12, 15, or 18, anti-Factor Xa international units IUequivalent to fragminn, 32, 48, 64, 80, 96 or Of those who underwent surgery, received Fragmin and received warfarin sodium. The most commonly reported adverse reactions are hematoma at the injection site and hemorrhagic complications.


Frqgmin minimum amount of benzyl alcohol at which serious adverse reactions may occur is not known [ see Ffagmin and Precautions 5. 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.

Let go of the plunger and allow syringe to move up inside the device until the entire needle is guarded. The median age of patients was 64 years range: Fragmmin clinical practice, cases of thrombocytopenia with thrombosis, amputation and death have been observed [ see Contraindications 4 ].

In the second study, a total of patients were enrolled and treated; received Fragmin and received heparin. If patients have had neuraxial anesthesia or spinal puncture, and particularly, if they are taking concomitant NSAIDs, platelet inhibitors, or other anticoagulants, inform the patients to pl for signs and symptoms of spinal or epidural hematoma, such as tingling, numbness especially in the lower limbs and muscular weakness.

The “gasping syndrome” is characterized by central nervous system depression, metabolic acidosis, and gasping respirations.

Dalteparin is a low molecular weight heparin with antithrombotic properties. When prescribing Fragmin multiple-dose vials in infants consider the combined frqgmin 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.

These hematomas may result in long-term or permanent paralysis.

TGA eBS – Product and Consumer Medicine Information

All patients, except when contraindicated, were treated concurrently with aspirin to mg per day. The easiest way to lookup drug information, identify pills, check interactions and set up your own personal medication records.

Placement or removal of an epidural catheter or lumbar puncture is best performed when the anticoagulant effect of dalteparin is low; however, the exact timing to reach a sufficiently low anticoagulant effect frragmin each patient is not known.

Fragmin is also indicated for the prophylaxis of deep vein thrombosis DVTwhich may lead to pulmonary embolism PE:. Dalteparin sodium has not been tested for its carcinogenic potential in long-term animal studies. Adjust the timing of the dose on Postoperative Day 1 accordingly. The following adverse reactions have been identified during postapproval use of Fragmin.


The combined incidence of death, MI, need for intravenous heparin or intravenous. With the needle pointing up, prepare the syringe by expelling the air bubble and then continuing to push the plunger to the desired dose or volume, discarding the extra solution in an appropriate manner.

Epidural or spinal hematomas may occur in patients who are anticoagulated with low molecular weight heparins LMWH or pii and are receiving neuraxial anesthesia or undergoing spinal puncture.

All patients, except when contraindicated, were treated concurrently with fragnin 75 mg once daily and beta blockers.

In medical patients with severely restricted mobility during acute illness, the recommended dose of Fragmin is 5, IU administered by subcutaneous injection once daily. Remove the needle shield.

Fragmin – FDA prescribing information, side effects and uses

Subcutaneous administration of doses of 5, Fragmon twice daily of Fragmin for seven consecutive days to patients undergoing abdominal surgery did not markedly affect APTT, Platelet Factor 4 PF4or lipoprotein lipase. FDA alerts for all medications. Use of indwelling epidural catheters Concomitant use of other drugs that affect hemostasis, such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs NSAIDsplatelet inhibitors, other anticoagulants.

A study evaluated samples of maternal blood and breast milk in 15 lactating women receiving prophylactic doses of dalteparin in the immediate postpartum period days 4—8 after Cesarean-section. If signs or symptoms of spinal hematoma fragminn suspected, initiate urgent diagnosis and treatment including consideration for spinal cord decompression even though such treatment may not prevent or reverse neurological sequelae. These patients had an acute medical condition requiring a projected hospital stay of at least 4 days, and were confined to bed during waking hours.
