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.

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. Discontinue their use prior to dalteparin therapy whenever possible; if co-administration is frwgmin, the patient’s clinical and laboratory status should be closely monitored [ see Drug Interactions 7 ]. If neurological compromise is noted, urgent treatment is necessary.
Skin necrosis has occurred.
To ensure delivery of the full dose, do not expel the air bubble from the prefilled syringe before injection.
In patients undergoing abdominal surgery associated with a high risk of thromboembolic complications, such as malignant disorder, the recommended dose of Fragmin is 5, IU subcutaneously the evening before surgery, then once daily postoperatively.
The incidence of the combined endpoint of death, myocardial infarction, or ffagmin angina during this 1-week treatment period 5 to 8 days was 9. Fragmin Injection dalteparin sodium injection is a sterile, low molecular weight heparin. Concurrent aspirin therapy is recommended except when contraindicated.
The entire fragmn of the needle should be inserted at a 45 to 90 degree angle. The combined incidence of fragmih, MI, need for intravenous heparin or intravenous. Three of the major bleeding reactions that occurred by Day 21 were fatal, all due to gastrointestinal hemorrhage two patients in the group treated with Fragmin and one in the group receiving placebo. The usual duration of administration is 5 to 10 days after surgery; up to 14 days of treatment with Fragmin have been well tolerated in clinical trials.
The third group of patients received warfarin sodium the evening of the day of surgery, then continued daily at a dose adjusted to maintain INR 2 to 3.
All pregnancies have a background risk of birth defect, loss, or other adverse outcomes. Inspect Fragmin prefilled syringes and vials visually for particulate matter and discoloration prior to administration. Fratmin estimated background risk of major birth defects and miscarriage for the indicated population is unknown. Depress the plunger of the syringe while holding the finger flange until the entire dose remaining in the syringe has been given.
The risk of these events is higher with the use of post-operative indwelling epidural catheters, with the concomitant use of additional drugs affecting hemostasis such as NSAIDs, with traumatic or repeated epidural or spinal puncture, or in patients with a history of spinal surgery or spinal deformity [ see Boxed Warning and Adverse Reactions 6.
Fragmni this study evaluated colostrum or transitional milk at a single timepoint during the hour fravmin interval, the clinical relevance of this data is unclear in regards to passage of drug into mature milk and the quantification of drug exposure to the infant over the full dosing interval.

Increasing the dose from 2, to 10, IU resulted in an overall increase in anti-Factor Xa AUC that was greater than proportional by about one-third. All patients, except when contraindicated, were treated concurrently with aspirin to mg per day. Anti-Factor Xa may be used to monitor the anticoagulant effect of Fragmin, such as in patients with severe renal impairment or if abnormal coagulation parameters or bleeding occurs during Fragmin therapy.
The mean age of the combined groups was 71 years range 40 to 95 years. In the total enrolled study population of 1, patients, patients were treated; received Fragmin first dose before surgeryreceived Fragmin first dose after surgery and received warfarin sodium.
Limited published data indicate that dalteparin is present in human milk in small amounts see Data.
Depress the plunger of the syringe while holding the finger flange until the entire dose has been given. The fragimn age of the study population was 59 years range 30 to 88 years and the majority of patients were female In clinical practice, cases of thrombocytopenia oi thrombosis, amputation and death have been observed [ see Contraindications 4 ].
Of the 1, patients enrolled, 1, patients were treated; received Fragmin and received heparin. The risk for bleeding varies with the indication and may increase with higher doses. Dalteparin sodium has not been tested for its carcinogenic potential in long-term animal studies.
Peak anti-Factor Xa activity increased more or less linearly with dose over the same dose range.
Fragmin fragmim be injected in a U-shape area around the navel, the upper outer side of the thigh or the upper outer quadrangle of the buttock.
Target anti-Xa range is 0. Each multiple-dose vial also contains Water for Injection and 14 mg of benzyl alcohol per mL as a preservative.
Serious and fatal adverse reactions including “gasping syndrome” can occur in neonates and low-birth weight infants treated with medications that contain the preservative benzyl alcohol.
Hold the syringe framin by the open sides of the device. The majority of patients had postoperative indwelling epidural catheters placed for analgesia or received additional drugs affecting hemostasis.
