Yes, Carbatrol (carbamazepine) can lower white blood cells and platelets.

White blood cells help your body fight infections, so can make it easier for you to get sick. Low platelets can make it easier for you to bleed from an injury. To be sure your blood cells do not get too low, your blood will need to be tested on a regular basis. Do not miss any scheduled appointments.
