Description of Promacta
The generic name of Promacta is Eltrombopag. It belongs to a group of drugs known as Thrombopoietin receptor agonists. Promacta is available in the form of an oral tablet. It is supplied in three strengths such as Promacta 25mg, 50mg and 75mg. The drug is a prescription medication, which means you need to consult your doctor before you buy Promacta online.
Indications & Dosage of Promacta
Promacta is used to treat a specific blood disorder where the blood doesn’t clot properly due to the deficiency of platelets. It is specifically indicated in the treatment of low blood platelet count in patients with chronic ITP. The drug should not be used to treat low platelets counts caused by other conditions or diseases.
Promacta works by increasing the number of platelets. Eltrombopag, the main active ingredient in the medication, binds to TPO receptors and causes the cells in the bone marrow to produce more platelets.
Your doctor will give you specific instructions regarding the dosage. Take the medication on an empty stomach 1 hour before or 2 hours after your meal. You need to take Promacta tablets 4 hours before or 4 hours after consuming dairy products or calcium fortified juices.
