Hey guys. I was diagnosed with ITP last week & my hematologists is still working on the “why” behind it. I’ve taken adderall for a couple of years, so I was wondering if you all had heard any negative things with adderall causing low platelets? I’ve read a few negative things about it, so I was curious! I’m not currently taking it now because I’m on prednisone! Thanks!! (I’m 28)
