After being treated for ITP for several months on high doses of prednisone, 120mg daily, I developed many pulmonary embolisms in both lungs at same time, December 2015. Started on Warfarin and just a month ago the doc switched me to Eliquis after being off warfarin for a few weeks due to a kidney stone, which was causing me to bleed. He took that opportunity to switch me to Eliquis. Has anyone else switch from warfarin to eliquis, and did you have effects?
My dermatologist diagnosted Schamberg Disease on my legs, but the purpura pin pricks began 2 years ago when I started nebbing the levalbuterol. Now, the purpura is wide spread and there is swelling with some pain on touch and in calf.
Hi, I was diagnosed with ITP but after months of treatment with prednisone I am now in remission. However, because of the prednisone, I had some pretty bad mood swings and a psychiatrist gave me Cymbalta. Now I'm afraid that Cymbalta make my platelets fall again and I need to come back to prednisone. What should I do?

My daughter (8.5) has precocious puberty and newly onset ITP this month. She has had one dose of IVIG, her platelets increased, but now appear to be decreasing again. I am wondering if the treatment for PP could have something to do with ITP
I have ITP and I am just getting it under control. I have also just started on Cymbalta for pain due to my MS. But in doing my research I am not sure if I should be taking the Cymbalta as it can cause ITP. Is this true anyone?
