Recently after a blood check my GP noticed I had a very very low blood platelets count and mild anemia. I take the tablets rivaroxaban due to my atrial fibrillation. The tests are continuing to try to identify the reason for my low platelets reading. I asked the GP if the drug rivaroxaban I am taking could have any cause on this low reading but she did not seem to believe that would be the case. I have since read differently on various medical sites. Have anyone out there who takes rivaroxaban had also a low platelets reading and can you share the outcome, cause etc, with me if you have. Thanks in advance.
