Nice Pharmacy

After taking the generic Promacta daily, my count was 275 after one month. I have not had any side effects whatsoever. The price of brand one is so expensive. Thank God for the generic drug's help. Very good online pharmacy

      God bless me

      I have ITP and my platelet count was below 10 before My doctor recommended the generic PROMACTA to me cause my family can not afford the brand one. I have now been taking 25mg daily for 3 months and my platelet count is in the 70 to 90 range. I have no side affects, my doctor expects me to be on the generic Eltrombopag long term. God bless me
