Does Effient reduce number of Platelets?
I understand that effient reduces adhesion of platelets, but wondered if it also reduces the number that are produced.  My blood test  two weeks after stenting and one week after being switched from plavix to effient shows platelet numbers slightly below middle of reference range ( 250000/uL).   Likewise, fibrinogen is just below mid-range.

One of the rarer side effects listed for Prasugrel which is the active ingredient of effient, states "reduced platelet count".
