Sickle Cell is Disease is a blood disorder that turns your red blood cells into a sickle shape that’s according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC). The site goes on to say treatment for the disease includes over the counter pain medications and for severe pain patients can be prescribed opioids like morphine. But there is one medication that can help patients in severe in mild pain. Hydroxyurea is mainly prescribed for patients who are hospitalized 3 or more times and year according to The New England Journal of Medicine. But my hope is to prove Hydroxyurea should be prescribed for all Sickle Cell suffers to help patients’ live long and health lives.
