I have Esential THronbocythemia Vera. I was diagnosed in 1992 while in the hospital for pain in upper and lower abdomen. I have been on hydrea since 1992 except for a brief period I was put on Agrylin and a year that I was taking injections of Interferon. I have frequent headaches many of whch I simply haveto go to bed also I have edema and pain in my feet and legs, burning, stabbing pain in my feet. Is Hydrea safe enough for me to take 500 mgs a day for as long as I have been on it. And at first I was taking 2 and 3 a day to brinig my platelets down to 600,000.
