Hello, my toddler started taking Jadenu sprinkle about 1.5 years ago, and she had no side effects to it. We were doing quite well until this week when she’s suddenly started developing hives/skin rash and tremendous itching every time after taking it. The reaction is almost immediate- within 15 minute she will have hives. Does anyone know what is going on? I’m surprised this is happening after such a good steady run with it? She takes 90 mg 2x a day. Her ferritin is hovering around 2000.

Will thal rule you or will you rule thal?

The rash usually occurs right after beginning the chelator. I don't know if I've heard of this happening this long after beginning the drug. If it is the typical rash associated with deferasirox, it usually subsides after about two weeks. If it persists, I would suggest talking to the prescribing physician.


All we are saying is give thals a chance.
