CLEXANE (ENOXAPARIN) FOR COMMUNITY PHARMACISTS
Clexane is an anticoagulant of the low-molecular-weight heparin (LMWH) class, derived from natural porcine heparin, to treat thrombosis1.
Clexane is available in two different devices as seen below. The needle guard systems between these syringes differ. It is important that your patient knows what syringe they are going to use and the correct technique before injecting themselves with Clexane.
There are several different doses of Clexane, so the syringe may look slightly different from the ones shown here.
Automatic release of the safety mechanism when the plunger is fully depressed.
Needle completely covered by the protection cap immediately after the injection.
Release of the safety mechanism when the plunger is depressed after the injection.
An audiable “click” confirms the activation of the safety mechanism.
CLEAR IDENTIFICATION OF DIFFERENT DOSES
Clexane syringes and outer packs are available in a range of different colours, allowing easy identification of different doses. The package will clarify if it contains the Preventis or the Eris safety system.
