Ticlid seems to increase the risk of another potentially fatal blood disorder
Ticlid seems to increase the risk of another potentially fatalblood disorder...thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP).
Ticlid patients are already being monitored for neutropenia...now there are at least 60 reports of TTP.
TTP leads to thrombocytopenia...anemia...renal dysfunction...and neurologic changes that can be confused with a stroke. About 30%of these patients die.
