Thanks for the info Anne. I've seen a similar list on drugs.com. May end up reading this many times if it works. LOL, for all I know, I'll take it for one day and break out in an intense rash.

The 'adverse events' probability it really high for Danazol. One bad event that my hema mentioned is clotting. A study I saw mentioned adverse events occur in 20% of patients. Ouch, that's a big number! I don't recall any other treatment having that high of a number.

Cheers to Promacta!

Promacta update 3 (32.5 days). After 14 days at 16.6 mg (50 mg every 3 days) count is 56. Well, looks like 25 mg, or a bit less, will get me into a 50 to 100 count range. Doc has changed prescription to 25 mg for first refill and am taking 50 mg every other day for now. Recheck in two weeks.

On a side note, I ran across this recent article on treating ITP with 'old therapies'. The section on Danazol has some good practical information.

LOL, is it too early to ask for a full bottle of Promacta for Christmas?
