Yes, most likely.: PTU may even have a higher chance of causing this. Some decrease can usually be seen due to a number of factors. It should be monitored. With good physician monitoring, and the correct diagnosis treatment, you should be safe. Some of these effects are only temporary. Good luck / Prayers your way
