- Is there any other help in supplements, vitamins, etc., out there for someone with high platelets?
I have been on Anagrelide, and have had headaches, swollen ankles, high blood pressure. I am now going back on Hydrea again. It caused some stomach pain,anemia,fatigue, after being on it for 16 years. I'm trying the Hydrea again and have just started back on it.

Suffering from wounds that won't heal in feet and or legs,eye stroke maybe due to peripheral neuropathy often associated with hydroxyurea.
