My daughter has Essential Thrombocythosis and been taking Agrylin and been taking Ecotrin. There is a long grocery list of side effects, vision. Migraines,endrometrosis, accessory spleen, constantly dizzy, blood clots. Bruises, painful arms and legs, chest pains, nausea,blackouts anemia etc.
I have recently been informed that Agrylin is being discontinued, I have not been told why.
Is there an alternate meds for this condition, as a hydroxurea on trial caused mouth ulcers. I look forward to hearing from you.
I have browzing thru the internet and have seen that this meds is discontinued.
Some suppliers in South africa have indicated the supplier has now being changed. Is this true or buffer screen.
If taken off the market in Us and other countries, why is SSouth Africa not requesting answers.
If this drug is not suitable and has so many side effects it should be discontinued.

I have been in hospital for a week treated for septasemia due to ecoli getting into the blood stream.
They had me on a drip course of antibiotics as they thought at first it was salmonella however later found it was ecoli.
I am now home on two antibiotics..
Cifran. Ciprofloxacin 500mg. 28 tabs - 2 tabs a day
Metrogyl. 400 mg - 21 tabs - 1 per day
They found a small clot outside the bowel in a vein so to stop it increasing at the moment I also have....
2 needles per day of Clexane 80mg
Coumadin Warfarin at the moment 6 till it gets to the correct dose
The warfarin is for 3 months only they said.
Now to my question...
We have a very highly regarded homeopath who we have used for years. She suggested I take these to keep my bowel healthy whilst on the antibiotics.
She has subscribed a few things for me to take as I go off warfarin and at other stages.
She has given me a course of Nosodes. Senic60/c.veg 30c
7 drops unde tonge 3 times a day for 21 days
Plus digestive Nosodes
I can't talk to my medical doctor about this as they do not agree with homeopathy period.
My question is can I take these nozodes etc above without any effects on the antibiotics I have been subscribed.
