Abnormal blood count - 1270007

I have been on tarceva 150mg for 19 months last weeks tests shows the full blood count is abnormal. What does this mean and could it have something to do with being on tarceva. Thanks for your help ellie

Hi Ellie,

Hi Ellie,

Welcome to GRACE. Tarceva does not normally lower blood counts, although of course anything is possible. You may want to consult with your doctor about alternate causes. If there doesn't seem to be another cause, you may be advised to hold Tarceva to see if the blood counts improve.
