Eltrombopag is a prescription medication used to prevent bleeding episodes in patients with chronic immune (idiopathic) thrombocytopenia (ITP) or chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV). Eltrombopag belongs to a group of drugs called thrombopoietin receptor agonist, which work by causing the cells of the bone marrow to produce more platelets (cells that are needed for blood to clot).
