In brief: Depends.
Depends on the severity and age.
Withdraw any drug that might be a cause. Mild aplastic anemia might be treated with growth factors (procrit, neupogen). More severe disease is usually treated with stem cell transplant in younger patients and immunosuppressive drugs (atg and cyclosporine) in older patietns.

In brief: Treatment
Aplastic anemia therapy is decided based on severity of the disease and age of the patient.
Your doctor may recommend treatment with immunesuppressive meds such as cyclosporine, steroids or atg. Younger fit patients can benefit from donor marrow transplant. Supportive care with transfusions, antibiotics are helpful.
