Nplate How to Take

Nplate (Romiplostim) belongs to a class of medications called thrombopoiesis-stimulating proteins. Nplate (Romiplostim) is a medication used to treat low platelet levels in people with immune (idiopathic) thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP). ITP is a disease where the immune system is confused and attacks the platelet cells in the blood, destroying them.

Platelets are the cells in the blood that form Blood Clots which seal cuts and prevent us from bleeding. Nplate (Romiplostim) stimulates the bone marrow (the part of the bone that makes blood cells) to produce more platelets, which helps to prevent bleeding and bruising. Nplate (Romiplostim) may be used alone or in combination with other medications.

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

Your doctor may have suggested Nplate (Romiplostim) 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 being given Nplate (Romiplostim), speak to your doctor. Do not stop using Nplate (Romiplostim) without consulting your doctor.

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

Nplate Dosage

The recommended starting dose of Nplate (Romiplostim) is based on body weight and calculated as 1 µg per kilogram of body weight.

Many things can affect the dose of 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 using the medication without consulting your doctor.

Nplate (Romiplostim) is given as an injection under the skin (subcutaneous) once weekly.

People taking romiplostin will need to have their platelet levels checked regularly. Your doctor will order blood tests to do this. The doctor may adjust the dose of Nplate (Romiplostim) based on these test results to ensure that the proper amount of medication is being given to maintain their platelet levels.

It is important Nplate (Romiplostim) be given exactly as recommended by your doctor. If you miss an appointment to receive Nplate (Romiplostim), contact your doctor as soon as possible to reschedule your appointment.

Nplate (Romiplostim) does not contain preservatives and must be mixed with sterile water for injection before a subcutaneous injection is given. Once the powder has been mixed, it should be used within 24 hours. The mixed powder can remain at room temperature (25°C) or can be refrigerated at 2°C to 8°C for up to 24 hours prior to injection. The mixed powder must be protected from light.

Store Nplate (Romiplostim) in the refrigerator at 2°C to 8°C (do not freeze), protect it from light, 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.

Nplate Precautions

Tell your doctor or prescriber about all prescription, over-the-counter (non-prescription), and herbal medications that you are taking. Also tell them about any supplements you take. Since caffeine, alcohol, the Nicotine from cigarettes, or street drugs can affect the action of many medications, you should let your prescriber know if you use them.

  • stop taking one of the medications,
  • change one of the medications to another,
  • change how you are taking one or both of the medications, or
  • leave everything as is.

An interaction between two medications does not always mean that you must stop taking one of them. Speak to your doctor about how any drug interactions are being managed or should be managed.
