my daughter just been diagnosed with ITP. she is 15 years old and has been on prednisone for 4 months. Has recently had solumedrol iv injections for 3 days--back on 20mg prednisone daily for 2 more weeks, then we'll try to wean her off--has been on plaquinel for 2 months--we'll see where the platelets are soon. This has been a nightmare for her as well as the family--
