Fragmin vial (Dalteparin) is a medication used to treat and prevent harmful blood clots.

By preventing blood clots, Dalteparin helps reduce the risk of stroke or heart attack by keeping the blood flowing smoothly and lowering the activity of clotting proteins in the blood.

Dalteparin may be used in combination with other blood thinners for certain medical conditions. It may also be used to treat and prevent clots from recurring in patients with cancer.

Fragmin vial is administered by subcutaneous injection (under the skin). Dalteparin is a type of heparin and works as an anticoagulant, commonly known as a "blood thinner."
