dalteparin

Generic Name: dalteparin (dall ta PEH rin)
Brand Names: Fragmin

What is dalteparin?

Dalteparin is an anticoagulant (blood thinner). Dalteparin prevents the formation of blood clots.

Dalteparin is used to prevent blood clot formation in patients at risk who are undergoing abdominal surgery or hip replacement surgery, and those who are on bed rest due to illness. Dalteparin is also used in the treatment of certain types of angina and heart attacks, and to prevent complications of blood clots in patients who are also taking aspirin.

Dalteparin may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide.

What is the most important information I should know about dalteparin?

There is a risk of bleeding in the spinal or epidural space, possibly resulting in paralysis, when dalteparin is used along with spinal or epidural anesthesia or spinal puncture. This risk may be increased by the use of indwelling epidural catheters or by the concomitant use of drugs that affect blood clotting.

Do not inject this medication intramuscularly (into the muscle) or intravenously (into a vein). Do not take aspirin, ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil, Nuprin, and others), ketoprofen (Orudis KT, Orudis, Oruvail), naproxen (Aleve, Naprosyn, Anaprox, and others), indomethacin (Indocin), or any other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication without first talking to your doctor. These medicines may lead to bleeding when taken with dalteparin. Ask your pharmacist or doctor before taking any prescription or over-the-counter medications, including vitamins, minerals, and herbal products.

What should I discuss with my healthcare provider before using dalteparin?

Do not use dalteparin without first talking to your doctor if you
  • have a very low level of platelets in your blood,

  • have uncontrolled active bleeding,

  • have an allergy to pork products, or

  • cannot have accurate blood testing done prior to and during dosing.

Before using dalteparin, tell your doctor if you

  • have bacterial endocarditis,

  • have high blood pressure that is not being controlled,

  • need to have surgery or another invasive procedure,

  • have hemophilia or another blood disorder,

  • have a stomach ulcer,

  • have eye problems due to diabetes or high blood pressure,

  • have liver disease, or

  • have kidney disease.

You may not be able to use dalteparin, or you may require a dosage adjustment or special monitoring during therapy if you have any of the conditions listed above.

Dalteparin (Normiflo) is in the FDA pregnancy category B. This means that it is not expected to be harmful to an unborn baby. Do not use dalteparin without first talking to your doctor if you are pregnant or could become pregnant during treatment. It is not known whether dalteparin passes into breast milk. Do not use this medication without first talking to your doctor if you are breast-feeding a baby.

How should I use dalteparin?

Use dalteparin exactly as directed by your doctor. If you do not understand these directions, ask your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist to explain them to you.

Dalteparin must be used as a subcutaneous (under the skin) injection.

Do not inject this medication intramuscularly (into a muscle) or intravenously (into a vein).

Your doctor or nurse will give you detailed instructions on how to prepare, inject, and store dalteparin. Dalteparin can be injected into the fat of the stomach (in a U-shape around the bellybutton); the upper, outer area of the thighs; or the upper, outer part of the buttocks. Follow your doctor"s instructions.

The injection site should be varied daily.

Sit or lie down before receiving an injection. When injecting into the stomach or upper thigh, lift a fold of skin using the thumb and forefinger. Insert the needle completely into the fold (or buttock) at a 45 to 90 degree angle.

It is important to use dalteparin regularly to get the most benefit.

Do not use any medication that is discolored or that has particles in it.

Do not stop using this medication without first talking to your doctor.

Your doctor may want you to have blood tests or other medical evaluations during treatment with dalteparin to monitor progress and side effects.

Store dalteparin at room temperature away from moisture and heat.

What happens if I miss a dose?

Use the missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for the next dose, skip the dose you missed and use only the next regularly scheduled dose. Do not use a double dose of this medication.

Notify your doctor if you miss a dose of dalteparin.

What happens if I overdose?

Seek emergency medical attention if an overdose is suspected.

Symptoms of an overdose may include unusual bleeding from wounds or injection sites; nosebleeds; black, bloody, or tarry stools; blood in the urine; and easy bruising or bleeding.

What should I avoid while using dalteparin?

Do not take aspirin, ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil, Nuprin, and others), ketoprofen (Orudis KT, Orudis, Oruvail), naproxen (Aleve, Naprosyn, Anaprox, and others), indomethacin (Indocin), or any other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication without first talking to your doctor. These medicines may lead to bleeding when taken with dalteparin. Ask your pharmacist or doctor before taking any prescription or over-the-counter medications, including vitamins, minerals, and herbal products.

Dalteparin side effects

If you experience any of the following serious side effects, stop using dalteparin, and seek emergency medical attention or contact your doctor immediately:
  • an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing; closing of the throat; swelling of the lips, tongue, or face; or hives);

  • any prolonged or unexplained bleeding;

  • pain, warmth, or redness in an arm or leg, or difficulty breathing, which could indicate a blood clot; or

  • ulceration at the injection site.

Other less serious side effects may be more likely to occur. Continue to use dalteparin and notify your doctor if you experience

  • mild pain, redness, or warmth at the injection site;

  • rash or itching; or

  • fever.

Side effects other than those listed here may also occur. Talk to your doctor about any side effect that seems unusual or that is especially bothersome.
