Heparin (Heparin Sodium)

Heparin is an injectable anticoagulant medication that is used to decrease the clotting ability of the blood and help prevent harmful clots from forming in blood vessels. Blood clots most often occur in people who can’t move around well or who have had recent surgery or an injury. Blood clots that form in the veins in your legs, arms, and groin can break loose and move to other parts of your body, including your lungs or brain with potentially fatal consequences.

Before You Take Heparin

To make sure Heparin is safe for you, tell your doctor if you have any of the following: infection of the lining of the heart; uncontrolled high blood pressure; liver disease; bleeding or blood-clotting disorder; stomach or intestinal disorder; menstrual period. Advise your doctor if you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or are breast feeding as Heparin could be harmful during these times.
