Hi. I'm not a lupus sufferer but I have an auto-immune eye condition. I was prescribed cell cept which I took for approx 2yrs. My lymphocyte count was always low while taking this drug (along with low dose of pred) but was stopped before eye surgery. Eighteen months later I still have chronically low counts. Has anyone else experienced non-recovery of lymphocytes after discontinuing immune-suppressing drugs?
Any insight would be welcome.
I have been referred to haematology but no one at the eye hospital seems to be able to give me an answer. Surely this can't be a one off ?
