US Brand Names
Eltrombopag is used to treat thrombocytopenia (low platelets in the blood) in patients with a blood disorder called chronic idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP). This medicine is used after a splenectomy (surgery to remove the spleen) and other medicines, such as steroids or immunoglobulin, have not worked well enough. Platelets help clot the blood, so a person with thrombocytopenia may have bleeding problems. Eltrombopag works by stimulating the bone marrow to produce more platelets.
