Your doctor is correct; the medication is being used to treat an underlying coagulation problem that could be increasing the likelihood of preeclampsia. In other words, it is not the treatment that is causing a problem, it's the reason for treatment.

lovenox and pre e

Is lovenox linked to causing pre-e or hellp? I never had high blood pressure until I started the lovenox, but the dr does not think that it is causing my issues.
