I have been taking modafinil since last two weeks and I had the history of thrombocytopenia. So I have a low platelet count now due to modafinil as previously it was cured. now if i discontinue the drug will the hypersensitivity go away?
User posts to the study
I have been on Lexapro for about a year and I have extremely thin blood. I am not on anything else. I have noticed because I am going to School for Medical Assisting and we are performing capillary punctures and venipunctures on each other and I bleed so much with a cap puncture.
