Lapatinib + Capecitabine - low platelet count

Hi there

Is there anyone out there on the Laptinib/Capecitabine combination who knows about platelet counts? My platelet count has dropped over the last four blood tests and my oncologist is kicking off about it. I have searched the Internet to find out protocols and prescribing information on what the minimum platecount count can be to continue on this combination of drugs but have been unable to find anything to answer my questions. My oncologist, as usual, is not forthcoming with information.

Thanks for any help and advice about this.
