Lowers platelets : Checked into this from different sources and found that it lowers platelets and depresses bone marrow thereby decreasing all components of the blood including white cell counts. Advil (ibuprofen) also does the same, if u r taking it. Adverse reactions usually occurs only if u take these medications for long or too frequently. One or two doses to prevent motion sickness should be safe.
