My son who is 5 years old has had ITP for over a year and half now and the doctor keeps pushing us on why we are not signing up for Revolade. He says that the majority of his child patients are taking it and it helps them lead a normal life. He also says that he has not heard of any side effects in children. My son is not currently on any medication. He does continue to have bruising, but we are managing this by making sure he is not involved in contact sports etc. The school has also made reasonable adjustments for him at playtime also. We do want him to have a normal life so he can play with his friends, play cricket, jump on a trampoline (something which the doc says he cant do at the moment).
Has anyone observed or heard of any side effects in their children during the use of Revolade?
I have read that there are risks of liver damage and marrow fibrosis- has anyone come across these issues?
Any information would be much appreciated!
