I have been taking 50mg of 6MP for six weeks now, and haven't seen much effect yet. However, my WBC decreased encouragingly from 8.8x10e3/uL to 5.9e3/uL in the first month, and the my 6-TGN level indicates I am in the correct therapeutic range.
I know they say 6MP takes about 3 months to kick-in. My question is, should I continue to see my WBC decrease during that time and then stabilize, or should it already be at the level where it going to go? I've read the goal is to get the count down to as low as 4.0x10e3/uL, but I don't when I should expect it to level off for a given dose.
Symptoms started 10/06, diagnosed 4/07.
Currently taking daily 20mg Prednisone, 50mg 6MP, calcium w/D, 1/2 Prilosec (protects stomach from prednisone), probiotic, multivitamin, double strength fish oil (2).
