Who should not use enoxaparin injection?

Enoxaparin injection may not be safe for people who have had spinal damage or surgery, because it can trigger conditions known as spinal or epidural hematoma. Signs of this condition include muscle weakness and tingling or numbness in your legs. Studies have not been conducted to determine if enoxaparin injection is safe for pregnant women or a fetus. It is also not clear if this medication passes through breast milk. Make sure your doctor knows if you are pregnant or planning on becoming pregnant or breastfeeding before the use of enoxaparin injections. You should not use enoxaparin injection if you are allergic to any of its ingredients, including enoxaparin, heparin or pork. Make sure to discuss your entire medical history with your doctor before using enoxaparin injection.
