Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (1 week ago):

  • I have been taking cetirizine for allergy treatment since 2002. In 2007 I took a CBC count and all cell lines were normal. In 2008 however it was observed that all my cell lines were declining especially platelets. The decline continued as investigations were carried out including a bone marrow aspirate which all found no cause.

    In 2014 I was found to have severe anemia and multiple transfusions have ben done. Several investigations done in India have not established a cause for my cell count decline. Another bone marrow aspiration has not shown the cause.

    I then stumbled on some information that cetirizine could cause cell count decline for WBC, RBC and platelets. Please help me.
