What is this medication used for?
Deep vein thrombosis can be a real concern and while you may know that it can occur after flying, there are other times when it happens as well, including post operation. If you do suffer from DVT, there is the risk that you could end up with blood clots and if these reach your heart, brain or lungs they can be fatal. Arixtra can play a major part in preventing this when it is used in conjunction with warfarin.
The cause of DVT can determine the treatment. If it occurs after joint replacement surgery there will be an injection of 2.5 mg each day. The first dose should be given between 6 and 8 hours after the surgery was completed. Giving it earlier would be dangerous as it could lead to additional bleeding. Normally it should be given for up to 9 days, but when there has been a fracture rather than a replacement the treatment could last for up to a month.
Side Effects of Arixtra
If you do suffer side effects there are times when you should get emergency treatment. This is especially the case when there are breathing problems or parts of the face begin to swell. In addition, there could be beck pain and this could be a sign of a spinal clot.
As the injection will thin the blood, bleeding can last longer and injuries can bleed more easily. You need to speak to a health care provider if:
- You suffer from nosebleeds
- Menstrual bleeding is a lot heavier than normal
- There is blood coming from an injection site and it is painful
- You feel dizzy and fear fainting
- Urine is an unusual colour – red or brown
- You cough up blood
- Stools seem to contain blood and are infrequent and hard to pass
- You are tired and have pale skin – this could be a sign of anemia
- You develop rashes or blisters
If you have had this medication before and had a bad reaction to it then the doctor needs to know so that they don’t prescribe it again. Tell the doctor before the injection if:
- You are having issues with bleeding
- You have severe kidney disorders
- Heart problems – especially bacterial endocarditis
- Your blood has a low level of platelets
