Hi can anybody give me any feedback on ITP meds? I've had ITP for many years without medication until last year they got low, then a couple of months ago my platelets crashed to 5 , i was given steroids which took them up but slowly dropped when started coming off them I then had another low episode was given more steroids then had a bone marrow biopsy which thankfully was OK. The haemotologist wanted me to take Azaproprine but after reading up on the side effects I was very scared and worried to take them so didn't. My platelet count over pass month has been between 30/35 last week it was 31 lower than 6 weeks ago and the haemotologist said if it goes to 20 or single digits I need treatment but everything I read about the different meds for ITP just leaves me worried,scared and confused .
