Low platelets due to drugs?

Hi my husband has recently had routine blood tests as part of his yearly review.  The platelet count has come back low on repeat testing.  130,000 and 143,000 normal range should be 155,00-421,000.  I'm really anxious about this just another worry on top,of everything else.  Has anyone else had this situation? 

Any advice truly welcome


Hello Catherine, I’ve just read up a little about platelets on the Mayo Clinic website and one of the suggestions in reducing the number produced is caused by medication. Perhaps it might just need tweaking? A reassuring thing is that the GP is monitoring it. Has anyone else on the Forum any suggestions? V&J
