Hey. I know this post was started with a thought that possibly lovenox could be a possible cause for ADHD/Autism/Pdd-NOS. I know that I'm bumping this up from months ago and years too. I just wanted to let the OP know that the neurological disorders are found to be linked to the clotting disorders and not the treatment (lovenox). There is much proof of this in my family. I am the oldest of five children. My brothers all have various neurological disorders. Tourette's syndrome and Aspergers. ADHD. Autism/PDD. When I myself had my first and only pregnancy, we found out that I was clotting terribly. After many stressful weeks of insufficient growth while in utero; I was found to have multiple copies of MTHFR and Prothrombin Gene Mutation II. I was put on lovenox but the damage was done and the pregnancy was over soon after I began treatment. My now 4 yr old was born at 490 gms at 29.5 wks. He has no issues. My point is this. Some of those genes came from my mother and all of my moms boys have neurological disorders. It may seem that women on lovenox have children with a higher incidence of neurological disorders but if you look a little deeper it really correlates to the genes that cause the clotting. My mother never had clotting issues during pregnancy and never took lovenox.View Thread
