Two weeks ago my platelets dropped to 14,000 also at the same time I had an allergic reaction to an antibiotic and swelled up and landed in the hospital. They gave me benedril for the swelling and platelets for my low count. They were up to 44,000 when I left the hospital. Today they are back down to 29,000. I don't know much about this problem. Docs are still trying to figure out why I keep losing platelets. Will I pass out during the night if they drop too low or will I know they have dropped? I didn't know last time they were low and only went to the hospital because of the reaction to the antibiotic.Thanks!
