Clinical Uses Of Loparin
Loparin is used as an injection to treat and prevent harmful clots. Enoxaparin sodium is the active ingredient, which reduces the risk of stroke or heart attack by keeping the flow of blood smooth, lowering the activity of clotting proteins in the bloodstream. This anticoagulant formulation can also be used in combination with warfarin (a blood thinner) to treat certain blood clotting disorders. You are more prone to a blood clot if you have undergone a hip/knee or abdominal surgery. Loparin is equally effective for such people.

The dosage depends on your condition you are suffering from along with other factors such as age, and general health condition.
