I went to my doctor 2 weeks ago for a medication evaluation. I told her that I have been bruising very easily. We looked at my CBC from last June and my platelets were slightly low.
She took me off Celexa and put me on Wellbutrin. Said that SSRIs can lead to a low platelet count. She did a CBC. My platelet count has dropped again. Will recheck my platelet count in 2 weeks. I'm so worried that maybe it's not the meds that were causing the low platelets...maybe it's leukemia. What if they drop even more the next time they get checked?? I do remember years ago, when I took my first SSRI ever (Zoloft), I noticed easy bruising. But then it went away and came back when I switched to Celexa. Help!!
