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.

Concurrent aspirin therapy is recommended ffagmin when contraindicated. The molecular weight distribution is:. Most of the difference occurred during the first month of treatment see Table 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 in each patient is not known.
Minor bleeding was classified as clinically overt bleeding that did not meet criteria for major bleeding.
The corresponding mean disposition half-lives were 1. The developmental and health benefits of breastfeeding should be considered along with the mother’s clinical need for Fragmin and any potential adverse effects on the breastfed fragmun from Fragmin or from the underlying maternal condition.
Insert the needle into the injection area as instructed above. The entire length of the needle should be inserted at a 45 to 90 degree angle. Treatment with Fragmin was initiated with a 2, IU dose subcutaneously within 2 hours before surgery, followed by a 2, IU dose subcutaneously the evening of the day of surgery.

Epidural or spinal hematomas may occur in patients who are anticoagulated with low molecular weight heparins LMWH or heparinoids and are receiving neuraxial anesthesia or undergoing spinal puncture.
When administered at recommended prophylaxis doses, routine coagulation tests such as Prothrombin Time PT and Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time APTT are relatively insensitive measures of Fragmin activity and, therefore, unsuitable for monitoring the anticoagulant effect of Fragmin.
Longer apparent terminal half-lives 3 to 5 hours are observed following subcutaneous dosing, possibly due to delayed absorption.
It is available in single-dose, prefilled syringes preassembled with a needle guard device, and multiple-dose vials. Because these reactions are reported voluntarily from a population rfagmin uncertain size, it is not always possible to reliably estimate their frequency or establish a causal relationship to drug exposure.
Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia can occur with the administration of Fragmin.
Even with these additional doses of protamine, the APTT framgin remain more prolonged than would usually be found following administration of unfractionated heparin. The prophylactic effect was sustained through Day The samples were collected before and 3—4 hours after daily injections of IU dalteparin.

Table 8 summarizes major bleeding frafmin that occurred in a clinical trial of medical patients with severely restricted mobility during acute illness. In a trial comparing Fragmin 5, IU once daily to heparin 5, U twice daily, in the malignancy subgroup the incidence of bleeding reactions was 3. When prescribing Fragmin in infants, consider the combined daily metabolic load of benzyl alcohol from all sources including Fragmin multiple-dose vial contains 14 mg of benzyl alcohol per mL and other drugs containing benzyl alcohol.
When monitoring anti-Xa in these patients, perform sampling 4—6 hrs after Fragmin dosing and only after the patient has received 3—4 doses. The pH of both formulations is 5. Discard the syringe assembly in approved containers.
The mean age of the study population was 68 years range 40 to 90 years and the majority of patients were white Preterm, low-birth weight infants may be more likely to develop these reactions because they may be less able to metabolize benzyl alcohol. Inspect Fragmin prefilled syringes and vials visually for particulate matter and discoloration prior to administration.
FDA alerts for all medications. At the end of the six-month study, a total of 46 Dalteparin is a low molecular weight heparin with antithrombotic properties. Available for Android and iOS devices.
The mean age of the study population fragminn 69 years range 26 to 99 years The estimated background risk of major birth defects and miscarriage for the indicated population is unknown. Of those who underwent surgery, received Fragmin and received warfarin sodium.
An excessive dosage of Fragmin Injection may lead to fragmln complications. 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 PF4or lipoprotein lipase. Patients received either Fragmin or warfarin sodium, randomized into one of three treatment groups.
In a double-blind, multi-center, randomized, placebo-controlled clinical cragmin, general medical patients with severely restricted mobility who were at risk of venous thromboembolism were randomized to receive either Fragmin 5, IU or placebo subcutaneously once daily during Days 1 to 14 of the study.
