Terry Says:

I have had problems with my platelets. They dropped to 19,000 should be 140,000 or more.
My immune system is not recognizing them and they are being destroyed. It was great for my asthma, but not for my immune system. Should there be blood tests done regularly while on this drug? It is rare but it an happen known as thrombocytopenia purpura.

Hello, Terry! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem you had.

As to the blood work, it's usually not done, when a possible issue is so rare. Otherwise, a lot of money would be spent to check millions of people for an issue that almost never happens.

The typical side effects, as listed by the FDA, may possibly include nausea, cough, difficulty swallowing fever and headache.

Have they given you any treatment options?

No just take my inhaler and hope I don't have the problems I had before.
