I have been on Azathrioprine since september (also on plaquinel) I have been having the fortnightly blood monitoring and on one occasion my white blood count went slightly under but not enough to worry anyone and 2 weeks later it was normal again.
Roll on 3 weeks I yesterday had a call from the rhuemy doc to say my white blood count is dangerously low and to stop all medication and have an emergency blood test at my gp's on monday (rang GP and they cant fit me in!) I just want to know if anyone else has experienced this and what happens next? The Rhuemy doc said the strength is prob too high for me (75mg twice a day) Im just worried as im still experiencing symptoms on this dose so if its lowered want the medication be even less effective? Do they change your medication and try a different tablet or will my body react the same to all medication of this nature?
Any advice would be great as obviously im very concerned
