I had a bacterial infection in my lungs that led me to a pneumonia and a succesful recovery after a week of strong antibiotics. My platelets without any medication reached 400K. From there it slowly went down to 200K after several weeks and after another month my platelets seems stable between 50 to 60. Yesterday blood test It was 57K. Prior to my pneumonia my platelets were around 10K without medication.
My doctor want me to continue with Revolade to get my platelets over 100K again.
Do my body needs a break from Revolade after 3 years in a row?
Is 50 K to 60 K a relaxing figure?
Revolade should only be used to get your count up and keep it around 50, not more. Once it keeps increasing, the dose of Revolade is usually lowered. Maybe ask your doctor why he wants to increase your platelets that much and how much of a risk for thrombosis there is for you.
