34.Did it helooks with your platelets & how long did you take it for?Any cancer symptoms as per side effects?


i take it for 2 months. and cancer symptom i dont know. i had BM while taking neoral. So in BM it show slow production of my platelets. n they mentioned it might b because of this immunosuppressive drug which is neoral and imuran.

P.S it doesnt effect my platelets. they are on same count as it was 4 ,5 .


Ok and does it make any difference? Are you
