Hello,

Clexane is a medicinal product used to prevent the formation of coagules like Warfarin, therefore the adverse effects are hematomas, tend to bleed, hematoma in the site of injections. In adequate dose should not have major problems, there are adverse effects seen in blood test only, but in addition to that it is a pretty safe medicinal product.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Jose Mero Santana, General & Family Physician
