  • Hi, I would advise to take second opinion of an ITP specialist if you don't have one yet. MMF could be another option, as well as rituximab and N-plate. There are quite a few lines of treatments you didn't seem to have tried yet, so plenty of chances to get stable counts!

  • Unfortunately you have to keep trying different medication to find one that your body reacts well too. I'm lucky my ITP is steroid responsive, a short sharp shock usually sends my blood count back up. Others have to try other methods. Try and be patient and keep seeing the consultants, try not to stress, I found this used to affect my count too. I was told once that liquorice is a natural steroid, I am not a fan of it but I found it in a health shop in a small bar form. I dissolved it in warm water and drank it now and then. It may help but I didn't see miraculous results, but it might work for someone else.
