Britney....I had the same problem. The doctor had me on 100 mgm of the 6MP and my white count went down to 1.6. He took me off the med for a few weeks and thankfully my white count went up to 5.0. Now, he put me on 50 mgm. Do you have your CBC drawn monthly? I would say a safe level would be 3.5 and NOT below. Normal is 4.0 to 10.0. My GI said if it stays at the normal level my system attacks itself. At least at 3.5 you have some antibodies. My husband and I are retired and stay away from crowds and kids during the flu season. Wash you hands a LOT.
Diagnosed with ulcerative proctitis in 1998 in hospital
Hospitalized (2nd time) in May 2008 for ten days.
Remission Nov 08 thru May of 09.
Slowly coming out of flare. Meds: Colazal (6 per day), prednisone 10 mgm and tapering weekly, Cort enema nightly, Canasa in morning, Benicar 20 mg for BP, flaxseed oil 3 x a day, fishoil 2 x a day, probiotic 3 x a day, calcium with D 1x a day and multivitamin.
Doctor had me on 100 mgm of 6MP which drastically lowered my white count. Now off the 6MP pending results of repeat white count. UGH.
