Monitoring Your Child’s ITP Treatment

PROMACTA for children


Before starting PROMACTA® (eltrombopag), your doctor will perform certain tests such as bloodwork and an eye exam. After PROMACTA has been administered, your doctor will continue to check your child’s platelet count to monitor if PROMACTA is working and your child is taking the appropriate dose.

When your child first starts taking PROMACTA…

Platelet counts will be tracked once a week.

Once you and your child’s doctor have found a dose that works…

Platelet count checks will become less frequent.


Treatment is recommended for platelet counts <30,000/mcL and should be adjusted to maintain counts ≥50,000/mcL.
