29 Jun 2015 Nplate is the next to last option for me, I was hesitant on starting it, but didn't really have much choice. I get a shot weekly,and most weeks, it has kept my counts above 50K, only a few times has it dropped below. It even got me in a normal count range 4 times over the past almost 3 yrs. What I don't like is the leg pain, the feeling that my legs are getting an electric shock over and over, I also don't like the bone pain, joint pain and the muscle weakness as I've always been a very active physical type person. Depending upon the dosage, I'm not fit for much of anything at least 2 sometimes 3 days a week. I got the shot today, my counts were 45K. Within a couple of hours, I started with the leg pain and now the electric shock feeling. Think it's going be one of the bad weeks.

07 Nov 2011 Nplates have helped me increase my Platelets, after using Nplate for about 6 months I have severe bone pain. I don't want to keep taking Advil for fear of the pills lowering my platelet count.

04 Nov 2011 I always get flu symptoms the day after. I just don't feel like myself anymore, I am so tired and fatigue. More irritable and have mood swings. I don't sleep much at night but sleep a lot during the day. My joints hurt worst and now I really have to use my cane because both legs are in pain. I just want to get off the drug and see how my body feels.

02 Nov 2011 My platelets range from 21,000-30,000, with NPlate it is up to 87,000, It is now high enough to have a couple of minor surgeries. Being infused with platelets and fresh frozen blood plasma on several ocassions, platelets only rose to 37,000, not enough for surgery,,

26 Feb 2011 Am just beginning NPlate. My main concern is that this is only a temporary fix, and that I may just be kicking the can down the road instead of biting the bullet and getting the splenectomy while I'm in relatively decent shape yet.
