My doctor called yesterday and left a message that my white blood cell count was low and asked me to call him back. He didn't say how low. I've tried to call him and he's out of the office today.

The only medication that I'm on presently is Humiria every two weeks. Could this cause decrease white cells? If not, what else could it be?

It's probably the humira. Don't all the biologics have a risk of that since they are potent immunosuppresants?
