Dr stopped the azoran and waited for count to increase meanwhile he put me on Pentasa..when the cbc counts went normal ..again azoran started with smaller doses.25mg alternative days.As my counts were normal. I was put on 50mg daily.at this time count again goes on decreasing the Dr stopped azoran .He says azoran side effect is count decreasing..my count is wbc (2.14) He is going to put me on Methotexate ..i am unaware about this drug.
