    This is my 3rd time with the drug. I found that icing my stomach before and after injection caused less pain and bruising. I do however notice more headaches than with coumadin. Anyone else having side effects that you haven't had with coumadin or other medication?

    I am a "lifer" using Lovenox. It has been very effective for the last three years. I controll my bruising with Arnica cream. As long as I apply it daily, there is very little bruising visable.I prefer the cream over the gel. You can find this at a health food store. Life is good!

    Obviously doing twice daily injections is not "easy", but the drug has been mostly easy to manage and the shots have become less intimidating. I am taking these while trying to conceive (I am FVL homozygous with a history of DVT and PE at age 25) and while I am not excited at the prospect of taking these injections for the next year, I am grateful there is something that I can take to he ...
