Heparin 5000IU Injection 5ml contains the active ingredient Heparin Sodium. Heparin is a widely used anticoagulant medication that helps prevent the formation of blood clots. It works by enhancing the activity of antithrombin III, a natural substance in the body that inhibits blood clot formation.
Anticoagulation: Heparin Injection is prescribed to prevent or treat blood clots in various medical conditions, including deep vein thrombosis (DVT), pulmonary embolism (PE), and during certain surgical procedures to reduce the risk of clot formation.
Dialysis: Heparin may also be used during hemodialysis procedures to prevent clotting of the dialysis machine and maintain blood flow during treatment.
Common side effects of Heparin Injection may include:
Bleeding or bruising at the injection site
Blood in the urine or stool
Serious but rare side effects may include allergic reactions, heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (a decrease in platelet count), or excessive bleeding.
Use Heparin Injection exactly as prescribed by your healthcare provider, as overdose or incorrect administration may increase the risk of bleeding or other complications.
Inform your doctor about any pre-existing medical conditions, especially bleeding disorders, liver or kidney disease, or recent surgery, before starting Heparin therapy.
Tell your healthcare provider about all medications you are taking, including prescription, over-the-counter, or herbal supplements, as some drugs may interact with Heparin, increasing the risk of bleeding or other adverse effects.
Regular monitoring of blood clotting parameters, such as activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT) or anti-Xa levels, may be necessary during Heparin therapy to ensure optimal anticoagulation.
When Not to Use:
Avoid using Heparin Injection if:
You have a known allergy to Heparin Sodium or any other ingredients in the injection.
You have an active bleeding disorder, severe thrombocytopenia, or a history of heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT).
You are undergoing certain medical procedures where anticoagulation is contraindicated, such as lumbar puncture or spinal anesthesia.
