I just got the results back from my recent blood work and it said my lymphocytes were low. They've always been mid-ranged level, but this time it had dropped below than normal.
I read where this is common if your immune system is weak.

Do any of you have low levels of this?

I have low lymphocytes quite often. Being that I'm on cellcept and Benylsta I chalked it up to meds and my immune system being so severely suppressed.

I try to live each day with a positive outlook and count my blessings.

My lymphocytes are always low and neutrophils are always high. Never asked why but I also blamed it on all the meds.

All I'm on is plaquenil for my lupus. This is the first time mine has dropped low. Over the last three years it has slowly fallen, but was always in the normal range.

Hmm, I'd definitely inquire with your doctors office, I don't know that plaquenil alone should cause a drop in your lymphs, but I'm not a doctor so can't say for sure.
