Heparin Dosage ?'s Please help

Postby WSU505 » Thu Mar 22, 2012 10:20 am

I am 38 weeks and switching from Lovenox to Heparin. Never got a chance to switch with DD#1 had her early. From DD#1 Rx says 2500u twice daily and when I talked with the nurse today she told me to take 7500u twice daily. Big difference is dosages from preg #1 to this pregnancy.

If anyone has been on Heparin the last couple weeks can you please tell me your dosage.

At the beginning of this pregnancy, I believe I was on 5000 twice a day. Now I'm on lovenox at the 40 unit dose once a day, if the comparison helps. Don't know what I'll be switched to at 36 weeks (if I get that far).

Congrats on your pregnancy. Thanks for the info. I'm still not sure how much i should do. Think i might call my hematologist in the morning for a second opinion.

I know this is late, but my rx is now 10,000 units twice a day! I triple-checked and was assured that this is still a prophylactic dose. My dh is a physician but doesn't prescribe heparin and he thinks the dose is ok.

I was also switched to 10,000 units twice a day back in 2010. It will probably be the same for this pregnancy. good luck

have you gained weight? i think the dose for lovenox goes by weight. Im on 60 mg twice a day and wont switch til 36 weeks. I never had to switch before because my kids were born early
