What Are Promacta Tablets?
Promacta is prescribed for adults and children who are at least one year old. It is used to increase low blood platelet counts caused by persistent or chronic immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) when other medications or surgical removal of the spleen have not worked well enough. It also treats patients with low platelet counts due to severe aplastic anemia (SAA).
Promacta tablets come in varying strengths and are taken by mouth, once daily, without food or with food that is low in calcium. Promacta also comes in an injectable form, but the tablets are far more popular.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
ITP is an autoimmune condition in which the immune system attacks the body’s blood platelets. The resulting low platelet count increases the risk of bleeding or bruising and can cause fatigue. Bleeding can be extreme following injury. Although ITP usually is not life-threatening, it can require lifestyle changes to reduce the risk of injury, such as avoiding contact sports or other activities that carry the risk of injury and internal bleeding.
Promacta can cost as much as $50 per tablet or roughly $1,500 per month. Even patients with prescription coverage can find their out-of-pocket costs unaffordable. However, if other treatments have not worked, Promacta is an essential medication for patients with ITP.
We don’t think anyone should have to go without the medications they need to manage a chronic illness or sacrifice other necessities to pay for them. We know there are patient assistance programs that can help, but many who need them are unaware they exist. That’s why we put a lot of effort into raising public awareness about patient assistance programs. And we’re proud to serve as a bridge connecting people in need of patient assistance with the programs and organizations that can provide it.
How Does Promacta Work?
Promacta’s exact mechanism of action is not fully known. However, it is believed to work in the stem cells found in bone marrow to increase the production of red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Increasing the platelet count can reduce bruising and bleeding caused by ITP or SAA.
