2 doctors agree

In brief: Yes

There are 2% risk for neutropenia - decreased neutrophils.
However us box warning also states that ticlid-may cause life-threatening hematologic reactions, including neutropenia, agranulocytosis , thrombotic thrombocytopenia purpura (ttp), and aplastic anemia. Also, bleeding obviously can happen as this drug works by inhibiting function of platelet. Absolutely, routine monitoring is required.
