Today Kailey's platelets were 184k. The highest they have been in years. He told my husband that if in 6 weeks if she is still high he will begin tapering her off Promacta. The thought of this concerns me because she had a platelet dropped a while ago while taking Promacta due to being sick.
Has anyone ever had a successful tapering of Promacta?
