When my son was 7, he had had remission counts with his ITP for 2 years. He was prescribed Flovent for his asthma. He took a single dose. Within two hours, he began bleeding from his nose, had lesions on his tongue, and bruises on his body. We immediately recognized his need to get to a hospital. It took us an hour to get to the children's hospital ER. When we arrived, his counts were under 3,000. He was admitted, but the doctor on duty suggested release. I asked he be kept knowing his history of bleeding. Doctors at the hospital continued his medication and administered a second dose of Flovent. My son lost consciousness and bled more. He required several units of blood and was admitted to ICU. We begged them to discontinue Flovent from his medication regimen. They did. His counts did not rebound for 6 months, however, since we have demanded all doctors check for ITP interactions with drugs prior to prescription, our son has remained in remission for 4 years. We have been threatened with CPS for making these demands as another doctor insisted my son needed Flovent again and wouldn't call my son's hematologist. We took care of the issue by contacting the hematologist ourselves and asking him to intervene which he did gladly. Moral of the story, we as parents must be vigilant of medications prescribed to our children with ITP and continue to advocate for them. You are not alone!
