Thanks for using Healthcaremagic,
This drug (Telaprevir
) is used for treatment of Hepatitis C virus
, You are having severe anemia
which is most likely due to side effects of the drug,the oral burning sensation could be due to ulcers or infection in mouth like fungal infection
which is also common in such cases,possibly taste changes
Your blood investigation will tell how much is anemia and what about platelets count.
Please report to your treating doctor and discuss with him about continuation of the drug.
In the meantime avoid salty and spicy food. application of local soothing agents like benzocaine
may help but only after consultation of your treating doctor.
Hope this helps
