I was on 100 mg of Imuran when the Doc called and said to decrease to 75mg.   I guess my white blood count took a dive...    I have been on the lower dosage for 2 weeks now and had my blood re-checked.   I find out tomorrow if I have to switch to some stuff called Humira???

I guess thats the case, don't fear yet :) Hope the best for you!
How long have u been on 100mg for now? I just stared Imuran at 75mg at week one, soon 150mg I was told if all goes well.
I'm fearing a low WBC in the end.. :(
