She was using hydroxyurea then changed to Anagrelide because of hydroxyurea cancer concerns. Because of Anagrelide side effects she asked me if somehing natural could get her off Anagrelide. I learned red palm tocotrienol had potential so with her oncologist's approval she used 50 mg with each meal and as blood work showed platelet reductions her doctor adjusted frequency and amount of pills until he removed the drug entirely. While on hydroxyurea she did use aspirin but supplemented with magnesium as hydroxyurea causes magnesium loss that could result in inadequate amounts to activate thiamine and vitamin D. Low thiamine can cause cognitive impairment and many other health issues.

Ty for your reply. Good info. What cancer concerns using hydroxyurea do you know of? The magnesium issue is new info too. I will look into this especially since cognitive impairment is presently an issue. cognitive impairment began shortly after beginning hydroxyurea. Dr says not connected to each other. But I think the timing is too coincidental to not be considered. Side effects from anagrelide? Or red palm?

Also what brand tocotrienol are you using? Dr recommend? how long did it take to get platelets down & off med?
