Medical Description

Inhep Injection is an anticoagulant or blood thinner medicine. It contains heparin as its active ingredient. Inhep Injection is used in certain medical conditions where the blood vessels get blocked d
ue to the formation of clots. It is used to treat and prevent the formation of blood clots affecting the legs, lungs and heart. It helps in stopping the growth of blood clot that is already formed and inhibits its growth further. However, it does not decrease the size of clots that are already formed. The dose and duration of this medicine are decided by your doctor after accessing your medical condition. Inform your doctor about your complete medical history before initiating the treatment.
