Question Thank you and another question

I want to thank everyone for any information they have given me it has been helpful. Now, for an update. I have low hemoglobin and red bloodcell count has anyone with Lupus ever had this? I am on methotrexate,predinsone, and plaquenil. Any feedback would be helpful.

Re: Thank you and another question

When I took Methotrexate a few years ago I also had to take folic acid because it affects rapi-producing cells in the red blood cells. Folic acid helps to produce more of them counteracting the effects of the Methotrexate. I'm willing to bet that is why your counts are down.
