    My daughter (8.5) has precocious puberty and newly onset ITP this month. She has had one dose of IVIG, her platelets increased, but now appear to be decreasing again. I am wondering if the treatment for PP could have something to do with ITP

  • Eliquis and ITP

    After being treated for ITP for several months on high doses of prednisone, 120mg daily, I developed many pulmonary embolisms in both lungs at same time, December 2015. Started on Warfarin and just a month ago the doc switched me to Eliquis after being off warfarin for a few weeks due to a kidney stone, which was causing me to bleed. He took that opportunity to switch me to Eliquis. Has anyone else switch from warfarin to eliquis, and did you have effects?

    I have ITP and I am just getting it under control.
    I have also just started on Cymbalta for pain due to my MS.
    But in doing my research I am not sure if I should be taking the Cymbalta as it can cause ITP. Is this true anyone?

    Hi everyone. Newly diagnosed with RA. My doc does not want to use Methotrexate to treat because I have ITP. So I'm curious to find out how it's working for everyone here.
