Wbc counts falling

Since my wbc counts are low they injected FILGRASTIM inj. of 300mcg..any idea why my wbc count not increasing. Dr said decrease in count is due to azoran side effect....
1 did any one else have same prblm with azoran.?
Dr is going to replace azoran by methotrexate

Yep. I had the same issue and eventually I had to stop it due to low WBC count. I went in mtx and it got better so hopefully it will be the same for you.
