Customer Question
I have a relative...

I have a relative in Peru that has been diagnosed with immune thrombocytopenia purpura. Her doctor has prescribed Eltrombopag revolade 25 mg tablet which is a very expensive drug. 28 pills cost around $2000 dollars. She doesn't have insurance and my wife and I have been sending money for her care. Are there any alternatives to this drug? What is the usual time table for someone to be on this drug?

Doctor's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Wait, your not a doctor

Doctor's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Sorry, have to ask a doctor

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
