I just started rebif. My white-blood cell (WBC) count was super high, especially for monocytes. I looked that up and found that it is a sign of chronic inflammation, infection, or stress. Stress is troubling because of the high incidents of relapses and stress. That is what I found out and remembered anyway. I actually would like to see these WBCs get into normal range.
I know of one doctor with MS who uses rebif like it was a fix for when things got rough. I am not suggesting that this works, and this doctor is a general practitioner not a neuro, but I am wondering if my WBCs drop too low if maybe I should quit rebif (granted that dropping WBCs would be a happy experience at first).
Sorry if I am not much help. "I would like to know too" is more concise.
