I am currently taking a combination of four antiretrovirals which seem to work very well. Last week, I was prescribed Levaquin 500 mg for a sinus infection. When my CBC was run this week, my platelets had dropped somewhat. Do you feel that Levaquin can cause the platelets to drop?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Unlikely, but you don't indicate what antiretrovirals you are taking and what your starting platelet count was and how much it dropped.

low absolute CD4
Calcium, Vitamin D, and Supplementation
