My WBC count was 15.6 last week before taking Valtrex, now after finding many cherry angiomas since starting the Valtrex I was taken off the medicine and had more blood tests run. Now my WBC count is 16.1 after being on the medicine for almost a week.
From this study (2 days ago):
I never had gastroparesis until 2 months after I started Celexa. Could this be the cause?
