Neither drug...: Is associated with thrombocytopenia. Tramadol is used to treat pain, not hypertension. Its side effect profile includes drowsiness, headache, nausea, vomiting, dry mouth, etc. Lisinopril, an ace inhibitor, has a side effect profile that includes blurred vision, drowsiness, fatigue, dizziness, sweats, abdominal pain, etc. Your current PLT count is within normal limits, suggesting compensated itp.
