Available Strengths of Enoxaparin

Enoxaparin is available in two different concentrations. The 100 mg per mL concentration comes in the followings strengths and forms:
  • Enoxaparin 30 mg prefilled syringes (0.3 mL)
  • Enoxaparin 40 mg prefilled syringes (0.4 mL)
  • Enoxaparin 60 mg prefilled syringes (0.6 mL)
  • Enoxaparin 80 mg prefilled syringes (0.8 mL)
  • Enoxaparin 100 mg prefilled syringes (1 mL)
  • Enoxaparin 300 mg per 3 mL multi-dose vials.
A more concentrated form is also available (generally for people who need very large doses). The 150 mg per mL concentration comes in the following strengths:
  • Enoxaparin 120 mg prefilled syringes (0.8 mL)
  • Enoxaparin 150 mg prefilled syringes (1 mL).
It is important to note that the two smallest strengths (the 30 mg and 40 mg strengths) come in prefilled syringes that are not graduated. This means that the syringes do not have any measurement lines or any other way to adjust the dosage. The higher strengths of the prefilled syringes are graduated (they have measurement lines), meaning the dose may be adjusted as necessary.
Enoxaparin prefilled syringes each come with a 27 gauge, 0.5-inch needle attached.
