I am taking this for ITP to try to raise up my platelets. an average persons platelets are about 1500 mine are about 50. I started taking 5 4mg pills a day for two weeks. got to the 3rdday of the second week and my body felt like I was going to explode, I gained 10 pounds. Severe gas pains, Severe pain in all of my joints, Can't think straight, Bad bruising all over my body. Stay up for days at a time. Slur when I talk, Bad sweats
I called my doctor and he immediately took me down to two pills a day. I'm at day two of taking two pills and still feeling very sick. Just this morning I couldn't even walk without my ankles wanting to give out. It is to my strict understanding that you can't just stop this drug, However after this experience I would rather die.
