Agrylin Indication

Agrylin (Anagrelide) belongs to the family of medications called platelet-reducing agents. Agrylin (Anagrelide) is used to manage a condition called thrombocythemia, where your body produces too many platelets. Platelets are cells in your blood that help clots to form when you bleed.

If your body makes too many platelets, it is hard for your blood to flow normally and it will be more likely to clot or bleed. This can cause medical problems such as heart attacks, Stroke, Blood Clots in the lung or legs, as well as bleeding from the stomach, gums, or nose. Agrylin (Anagrelide) works by slowing down platelet production.

Agrylin (Anagrelide) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Agrylin (Anagrelide) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Agrylin (Anagrelide) may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Agrylin (Anagrelide) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Agrylin (Anagrelide), speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Agrylin (Anagrelide) without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Agrylin (Anagrelide) to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Agrylin (Anagrelide) if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Agrylin Dosage

The usual recommended adult starting dose of Agrylin (Anagrelide) is 0.5 mg 4 times daily or 1 mg 2 times daily for at least 7 days. After a week, your doctor will have you gradually increase the dose until an effective dose is reached. Laboratory tests performed at regular intervals will be used to monitor the number of platelets in your blood. It is very important to keep these lab appointments, as there is a narrow margin between too much and too little of the medication. Usually, your platelet count will begin to respond within 7 to 14 days when you have reached the proper dose of medication for you. Doses higher than 10 mg per day or 2.5 mg in a single dose are not recommended.

Many things can affect the dose of a medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

Agrylin (Anagrelide) works only while you are taking it. If you stop taking Agrylin (Anagrelide), the number of platelets in your blood quickly increases. Speak to your doctor before stopping Agrylin (Anagrelide).

If you miss a dose when you are just starting Agrylin (Anagrelide), call your doctor or pharmacist for advice. If you miss a dose during long-term treatment, take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Store Agrylin (Anagrelide) at room temperature, protect it from light and moisture, and keep it out of the reach of children.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.
