What antibiotics affect the red and white blood cell results if so would they be higher or lower in range?

In brief: Why do you ask?

If you've got an abnormal red or white blood count, you need to look for a real cause, rather than look first to antibiotics.
Penicillin in high doses causes hemolysis, chloramphenicol can drop the red count, and a few drug allergies can drop the neutrophils.
