This information sheet explains what enoxaparin does, how to give it, and what side effects or problems your child may have when they take this medicine. </p><h2>Before giving enoxaparin to your child</h2> <p>Tell your doctor if your child:</p> <ul> <li>Is allergic to enoxaparin, other low molecular weight heparins, heparin, sulfites, benzyl alcohol or pork products. </li> <li>Has any blood clotting problems, other conditions that increase the risk of bleeding or any active major bleeding. </li> <li>Has had a blood clotting reaction to heparin called thrombocytopenia (low platelet count). </li> </ul> <h3>Talk with your doctor or pharmacist if your child has any of the following conditions. Precautions may need to be taken with this medicine if your child has: </h3> <ul> <li>kidney or liver problems </li> <li>stomach ulcers </li> <li>high blood pressure </li> </ul><h2>How should you give your child enoxaparin?</h2><p>Your child's first dose of enoxaparin will likely be given in the hospital or in clinic. If your child is to receive enoxaparin at home, arrangements may be made to have a nurse come into the home to give it. Alternatively, you may be taught by one of the nurses to give your child the subcutaneous (sc) injections (injections under the skin) at home. If you give the injections at home: </p><ul><li>Make sure you understand and are comfortable with the way to prepare and inject enoxaparin, and know how to dispose of the needle and syringe. </li><li>Please see the "Giving your child Enoxaparin" guide from the Thrombosis Service for more information. </li><li>Dispose of needles in a needle/sharps disposal container </li></ul><h2>How much enoxaparin should you give your child?</h2><h3>Enoxaparin is available in several different strengths. The dosing information below applies to the 100 mg/mL (3 mL) multidose vials. </h3><p>Enoxaparin is usually injected using insulin syringes that are specially designed for injections into the skin. It is important to note that the volume is measured in "units" on an insulin syringe, and that one unit on the insulin syringe is equal to 1 mg enoxaparin. </p><p>1 unit on the insulin syringe = 1 mg of enoxaparin.</p><p> <strong>Your child has been prescribed _______ mg of enoxaparin each dose. This dose is equivalent to _______units on an insulin syringe.</strong> </p><p>The doctor may sometimes need to change the dose. Please bring this Med-aid to all your child's Thrombosis Clinic appointments. If your child's dose of enoxaparin changes, please ask one of the nurses or the pharmacist to complete the dose chart at the end of this Med-aid for you. </p><h3>Enoxaparin dosing chart</h3> <table class="akh-table"><thead><tr><th>Date</th><th>Dose of enoxaparin (mg)</th><th>Volume per dose (mL)</th><th>Units on an insulin syringe</th></tr></thead><tbody><tr><td>  </td><td>  </td><td>  </td><td>  </td></tr><tr><td>   </td><td>  </td><td>  </td><td>   </td></tr><tr><td>  </td><td>  </td><td>  </td><td>  </td></tr><tr><td>  </td><td>  </td><td>  </td><td></td></tr></tbody></table><p>For more information, see <a href="/Article?contentid=993&language=English">Enoxaparin: Injecting at Home</a>.<br></p><h2>What should you do if your child misses a dose of enoxaparin?</h2> <ul> <li>Enoxaparin is usually given every 12 hours (no less than 10 hours and no more than 14 hours in between doses). </li> <li>Give the missed dose as soon as you remember. </li> <li>If it is more than two hours after the dose should have been given, skip the missed dose.
