Platelets are cells that help your blood clot and stop bleeding. When taking TALZENNA, you may also have low blood-platelet counts (thrombocytopenia), which may cause bruising and bleeding.
If you develop thrombocytopenia during treatment, these tips may help you manage some symptoms:
- Be careful when taking over-the-counter medicines, such as aspirin, that can increase your risk of bleeding
- Moisturize with lotion and lip balm to keep skin from cracking
Make sure to tell your doctor if you notice abnormal bruising or bleeding while taking TALZENNA.
