I was taken off MTX after 7 weeks despite it working really well as it caused all white blood cells to drop to very low levels. Started leflunomide 6 weeks ago and have now passed the level in white cell count where it's recommended to come off that! Since the whole point of these meds is to reduce the immune system, surely they will all do the same? And my RA isn't even completely controlled and has been getting worse as WCW drops!
