  • Niacin induced thrombocytopena
    On peritoneal dialysis, 40mg Lipitor and 3000mg Niaspan. Platelets decreased to 12 and residual renal function fell off a cliff. Examination of patient's records for 10+ years showed long term platelet decline. Niaspan discontinued, platelets recovered to 120-200 (varies depending on sample) and some residual renal function returned.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (1 week ago):

  • I'm 53 diagnosed bipolar and hypothyroidism at 26 and 27 and diagnosed ADHD a few months ago, asked for second opinion as nurse diagnosing made 3 written mistakes and I was heavily sedated on Seroquel after being signed off with work stress, 2 weeks ago it was confirmed though only after a few minutes conversation and I did ask if psychiatrist was merely confirming to save face of his nurse for misdiagnosis and my original psychiatrist who referred me (who recently told me her son was ADHD) was given 18mg Concerta for 2 days then 36mg for 5 days until I was sick and extremely nauseous, bruised wrists, piercing sounds, eardrums blocked. Stopped taking after 7 days and GP intervention and now on day 5 of having a light period after 3 years of none. I was told by ADHD psychiatrist that people get nose bleeds and all side effects will go if only I can tolerate. During the side effects I also started writing lots of complaint letters and this is a trait of bipolar when high.

    I wonder if Concerta is now giving me a bleed or is this normal naturally?
