My 15 year old daughter was responsive to Promacta for 15 months, then it just stopped working for her. She has been on Nplate for 2+ months, and it appears she will be responsive to that. She is at 5 mcg right now, so at 50% of the maximum dose.
Not sure Nplate will continue to work, given her experience with Promacta. Any thoughts???
