Have you or a loved one taken Lovenox? If so, it may cause permanent paralysis.
If you, or a family member, have taken, or currently take Lovenox, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit against the drug manufacturer to receive financial compensation. Lovenox, or enoxaparin, is prescribed to help prevent the formation of blood clots. It is also prescribed to prevent a type of blood clot called deep vein thrombosis (DVT), which can lead to blood clots in the lungs (pulmonary embolism). It has even been given to patients to prevent blood vessel complications with angina (chest pain). How do you know if you are eligible to file a lawsuit? If you or a loved one has taken Lovenox and experienced any of the following symptoms you may qualify:
- Excessive Bleeding
- Unusual Bruising
Lovenox can cause a very serious blood clot around your spinal cord that could lead to permanent paralysis. You are at risk if you undergo a spinal tap or receive spinal anesthesia (epidural) while also taking Lovenox. It is particularly dangerous if you have a history of spinal injury or repeated spinal taps, or if you are using other drugs that affect blood clotting.
What is Lovenox?
Lovenox is a blood-thinning, anticoagulant that doctors prescribe frequently for a variety of conditions that have the potential to cause blood clots. It is made from heparin, which is a blood thinner, and includes an active ingredient made up of a complex mixture of sugar molecules. It was approved by the FDA in 1994, and a generic version was approved in 2010. Adverse symptoms associated with Lovenox include: paralysis, excessive bleeding, bruising, black or red stools, chest pain, low back pain, coughing, fever, seizures, and more.
