I posted this on the Australian Sclero Forums and would like to ask a wider audience:

Just wanted to know if anyone has experienced a massive reduction in white blood cell count as a result of using methotextrate? Apparently I am low enough to be admitted for IV antibiotics and add another specialist to my list?
Currently I am on antibiotics and spent last week in bed fighting (so I thought) the chest infection that I couldn't shake?
Any reassurance would be greatly appreciated.
