Brother has very low platelet counts since 10 days he was detected
with TB and was given Rifampicin due to which his platelet count got
low until 8500 and now since 3 days it is 15000 stagnant and his SGPT
was high too i.e 1870 now its 110...

secondary to antituberculous drugs is rifampicin. A literature search

platelet count is below 20,000, people are usually treated in a hospital
or advised to stay in bed to avoid injury. They are usually given
a transfusion of platelets. If the platelet count is 20,000 to 30,000
and excessive bleeding occurs, platelets are usually transfused.
a disorder that has reduced the platelet count often restores the
count to normal. If taking rifampicin is the cause, it is usually
