Precautions and Warnings With Tinzaparin

As with any "blood-thinning" medication, tinzaparin increases your risk of internal bleeding, a potentially fatal side effect. To help ensure your safety, tell your healthcare provider if you find yourself bruising easily or experiencing changes in your vision or speech during treatment with tinzaparin. Other precautions and warnings apply to people with conditions such as high blood pressure or kidney disease.

What Should I Tell My Healthcare Provider?

Talk with your healthcare provider prior to using tinzaparin sodium (Innohep®) if you have:
 
  • A bleeding disorder (not a clotting disorder)
  • Intestinal or stomach ulcers or bleeding
  • Bleeding in the brain
  • An aneurysm
  • A bacterial infection of the endocardium (the inner layer of the heart)
  • Had a negative reaction to heparin
  • Kidney disease, such as kidney failure
  • Had recent brain, eye, or spinal surgery
  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
  • Diabetic retinopathy (an eye condition)
  • Any allergies, including to foods, dyes, or preservatives.
     
Also, let your healthcare provider know if you are:
 
  • Breastfeeding
  • Pregnant or thinking of becoming pregnant.
     
Make sure to tell your healthcare provider about any medications you are taking, including prescription and nonprescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.
