THROMBOCYTOPENIA and Prednisone

THROMBOCYTOPENIA Symptoms and Causes

Platelets are little pieces of blood cells. Platelets help wounds heal and prevent bleeding by forming blood clots. Your bone marrow makes platelets. Problems can result from having too few or too many platelets, or from platelets that do not work properly.

If your blood has a low number of platelets, it is called Thrombocytopenia. This can put you at risk for mild to serious bleeding. If your blood has too many platelets, you may have a higher risk of blood clots. With other platelet disorders, the platelets do not work as they should. For example, in von Willebrand Disease, the platelets cannot stick together or cannot attach to blood vessel walls. This can cause excessive bleeding.

Treatment of platelet disorders depends on the cause.

I was recently diagnosed as having rheumatoid arthritis one of the meds prescribed was prednisone one of the side affects that i have noticed is my stomach cramps inthe evening. gonna check to see if I can get a different prescrition

Can amitriptyline can cause thrombocytopenia ?

Had Fluzone HD Oct.13, 2010, and on Nov. 4, 2010, platelet count was down to 64. Diagnosed with thrombocytopenia purpura Jan. 2011. Have done rounds of steroids and Rituxin and have had roller coaster platelet counts til present with latest count 60.

I have been on Risedronate since 2008 because I have osteoporosis and now I am diagnosed with Immuno thrombocytopeniaI am 60 years old

Patient received clomiphene for 5 days 2 months ago and developed severe anemia, thrombocytopenia with hypocellular marrow.

Sorry, that was ITP or, idiopathic thrombocytopenia purpura...

THROMBOCYTOPENIA Clinical Trials and Studies

Treatments might be new drugs or new combinations of drugs, new surgical procedures or devices, or new ways to use existing treatments. The goal of clinical trials is to determine if a new test or treatment works and is safe. Clinical trials can also look at other aspects of care, such as improving the quality of life for people with chronic illnesses. People participate in clinical trials for a variety of reasons. Healthy volunteers say they participate to help others and to contribute to moving science forward. Participants with an illness or disease also participate to help others, but also to possibly receive the newest treatment and to have the additional care and attention from the clinical trial staff.
