A 58-year-old male asked:

Does ladogal (danazol) helps on producing platelets in blood? i have acute myelogenous leaukemia and i've been prescribed with this medicine.

Probably not: Danazol may modestly improve the platelet count in people with myelodysplasia, but not likely to help much with acute leukemia.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
