ANS: D
Choline salicylate is indicated for moderate pain; it does not inhibit platelet aggregation and therefore is safe for patients with thrombocytopenia.
Motrin inhibits platelet aggregation and should not be used in patients with thrombocytopenia.
Acetylsalicylic acid should not be used in patients with thrombocytopenia.
Celebrex is not indicated, because it poses a risk of thrombotic events.
