  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.
    Lonopin (also known as Lovenox) is a sterile aqueous solution containing Enoxaparin Sodium, a Low Molecular Weight Heparin (LMWH), intended for subcutaneous use. 
    Lonopin is indicated for the prophylaxis of deep vein thrombosis (DVT), which may lead to pulmonary embolism (PE): 
    -in patients undergoing abdominal surgery who are at risk for thromboembolic complications. 
    -in patients undergoing hip replacement surgery, during and following hospitalization. 
    -in patients undergoing knee replacement surgery.
    -in medical patients who are at risk for thromboembolic complications due to severely restricted mobility during acute illness. 
    In regards to pregnancy and infant safety, I wasn't able to locate much details, but what little bit I did find is listed below: 
    Lonopin does not cross the placenta, and is not expected to result in fetal exposure to the drug. 

    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to write back to us with follow-up questions.
