I'm one of the "you folks" with a partial remission (I guess - lower counts, no treatment) - I don't work out. But I plan to get back to exercising now that my new knees are in place - have started back dancing (tap and clogging - clogging is a good workout).

Regarding multivtamins ecoclayton - my MD a few years back told me not to take one with E because at that time I was getting spontaneous vein breaks in the back of my fingers. Once I stopped the multi that stopped. So who knows. I do take Vitamin C (Ester C) and some other supplements but not a multi. Hmmmm - I thought ITPers and Melatonin don't mix, maybe I'm thinking of something else.

Mel,
My doctor suggested I try the melatonin. I also found this.

I will let you know how it works out over the next few weeks.
