Lovenox (enoxaparin) is now approved for unstable angina or non-Q wave MIs
The low molecular weight heparin, Lovenox (enoxaparin) is nowapproved for unstable angina or non-Q wave MIs.
It's an alternative to IV heparin...to prevent recurrentangina or MIs. These patients are also given low-dose aspirin.
Lovenox is more effective than IV heparin for this use...andit's easier to use because it doesn't require aPTT monitoring.
