What is Agrylin
Agrylin is the brand name for anagrelide, a drug used to treat a rare blood disorder called myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN). MPN is a cancer of the blood-forming tissues, such as the bone marrow, and can cause an increase in the number of red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Agrylin is a type of drug called a “hematopoietic agent” and works by slowing the growth of the abnormal cells in MPN.
Agrylin is taken by mouth, typically in tablet form, once a day. It is important to take Agrylin exactly as prescribed by your doctor and to not stop taking it without talking to your doctor first. Agrylin can cause serious side effects, such as low blood pressure and heart problems, so it is important to be monitored regularly by your doctor while taking it.
