Hello, I am new to these forms I try and stay away due to scare stories and everything else, my first consultant said this to me which was good advice at the time, I've had lupus now for 8 years when I was 18 I've been always closely monitored a lot, I would of got bad skin rashes, tiredness and the arthritis in every joint in my body! I was put on 75mg azathiorine cause I got very sick and after a year everything went well, but my white blood cells kept going dangerously low so the past 2 years I've been on and off this medication, (now on 50mg) they said because Im still in child bearing age they don't want to put me on anything else but I'm not ready to have children yet I feel like it be to much stress and I want a career first! But just want to know what anyone else thinks? I don't know if I should stay off the medication and see what happens or just try something else because my bloods don't stable for very long and I get horrible headaches when the white blood cells and low... it just feels like half the time I'm not even told what else is there or there's a block but this medication has helped amazingly I just don't feel like it's right anymore... thank you
