From the doctors' comments about the drug Kleksan.
In my opinion, Clexane is a good remedy for the treatment of thrombosis, embolism and thromboembolism.
For all my practice of using this drug, I can say with confidence that this tool has a positive effect and leads to a quick recovery. But nevertheless it is necessary to apply it only under indications and only after appointment of the doctor.
The drug Clexan works well both in the treatment of heart failure, myocardial infarction, and various diseases of the veins - varicose veins, thrombosis, embolism, thromboembolism. This tool has been clinically tested and proven effective. However, do not forget about side effects and contraindications, it is not advisable to use this remedy for hemorrhagic diseases and other conditions specified in the instructions.
Thoughts of patients.
The drug Clexan was prescribed to me by my doctor for the treatment of vein thrombosis. I did it in accordance with the instruction before the operation and then in the subsequent period. The entire course of treatment I had a week.
After the treatment, I noticed relief, pains passed, inflammation and heaviness left. However, still a lot of contraindications and side effects of this drug, but effective!

I was prescribed Clexan for the treatment of varicose veins and thrombosis. I have an increased risk.
I was given it at a dosage of 40 mg first before the operation, then in the following period. In total I received 10 injections. Of course, the condition has improved, but not much. Perhaps I have a severe defeat and a neglected disease. And there are too many contraindications.
