Fragmin information

Side Effects
Available Form

Fragmin (Dalteparin) is given by subcutaneous (under the skin) injection, usually in the lower abdominal area. Sometimes, in a hospital setting, Fragmin (Dalteparin) is given intravenously (into the vein). The recommended dose and route of administration of Fragmin (Dalteparin) varies according to the individual and the condition being treated. Your doctor will order blood tests to determine how effective the medication is for you and will adjust the dose based on the effect of Fragmin (Dalteparin).

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are using the medication without consulting your doctor.

If you are injecting the medication yourself, your doctor or health care professional will show you how to inject the medication properly. If you have any questions about how to use your medication, contact your doctor or health care professional.

Do not use the medication if the syringe is leaky, or if the medication appears cloudy or discoloured.

To use the medication:

  • Wash your hands and clean the injection site with an alcohol swab. Do not rub the injection site.
  • Remove the needle shield. Avoid pressing on the syringe plunger so as not to lose any of the syringe content. Hold the syringe like a pencil.
  • Pinch a fold of skin in the lower (left or right) region of your abdomen. Choose a different injection site for each injection so that you are not always injecting the same area.
  • While holding the skin fold, insert the entire needle into the skin fold vertically and press the syringe plunger down completely.
  • Remove the needle and let go of the syringe plunger. (The syringe will move into the device until the needle is guarded.)
  • Apply pressure to the injection site with the alcohol swab for 5 to 10 seconds. Do not rub the injection site.
  • Safely dispose of the used syringe device in approved containers, and keep it out of the reach of children.

It is important to use Fragmin (Dalteparin) exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, inject it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not inject a double dose for to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Store Fragmin (Dalteparin) at room temperature, protect it from light and moisture, and keep it out of the reach of children. If you are using the multiple dose vial, the medication must be used within 14 days after first use.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.
