Hi there was just wondering if anyone had any experience in low blood platelets? May daughters bloods have picked this up to day she is on Methotrexate and Etanercept and was wondering if anyone had experienced this. THanks

    I had this exact same issue on Methotrexate with Etanercept.
    It is the Etanercept causing the problem not the Methotrexate, I was moved to Infliximab and haven't had any platelet problems with it.

    Welcome to the forum bluesweets, I am sure you will find support, advice and light relief.

    I am one of the moderation team, we all have one or more arthritis conditions or look after family with the same.

    This post didn't seem to get any replies when it was posted just before Christmas. Maybe it will have some responses now that you have also posted.
