Re: Anyone have 10 mg Prednisone effect their bloodwork?
Last round of blood results I had came back with low lymphocytes and high neutrophils. My c3 had risen and c4 fell. I was curious and researched a bit and found out that this can be caused by lupus itself, or by prednisone, at the time of the blood draw I had been on 10 mg. a day for about three months prior to the blood draw. Previously I had been taking 7.5 mg. a day and an occassional depo-medrol injection, and previous blood work was normal where lymphocytes and neutrophils were concerned. I have been on a 15 mg. per day pulse and then down to 10 mg. a day again, and have another appt. later this month, it will be interesting to see if my Dr. orders bloodwork again whether the lymphocytes are still low or not.
