Dalteparin is used in combination with aspirin to prevent serious or life-threatening complications from angina (chest pain) and heart attacks. It is also used to prevent deep vein thrombosis (DVT), a blood clot typically occurring in the leg, which can lead to pulmonary embolism (PE), a blood clot in the lung. Dalteparin belongs to a class of medications called anticoagulants (blood thinners) and works by reducing the blood’s ability to clot.

Uses and Dosage

This medication is administered by injection under the skin as directed by your doctor, typically once or twice daily. Do not inject it into a muscle.

Do Fragmin injections hurt?

About 5 out of 100 people in clinical studies reported having pain at the Fragmin injection site. Rotate the site where you inject Fragmin each time to help prevent pain and bruising.

Is Fragmin the same as heparin?

Fragmin belongs to a class of anticoagulants called low molecular weight heparins (LMWH). It works similar to heparin because it thins your blood to prevent blood clots. Since it’s a LMWH, it has a different structure so it targets a more specific type of clotting protein. When given as a subcutaneous (under the skin) injection, Fragmin is absorbed better, lasts longer, and requires fewer injections per day.
