In brief: Depends on cause

If the cause is reversible (like a secondary immune reaction due to a medication) then stopping the med should help reverse th process.
If the problem is autoimmune, other strategies such as plasmapheresis/immunisuppression might make asignificant impact. These decisions are best managed by a hematologist.

In brief: Yes

There are multiple effective treatments for this condition depending on the cause.
Drug-induced or immune causes can be reliably treated. For more severe cases such as due to bone marrow failure syndromes, the treatments are more compicated and less satisfactory.
