In brief: It depends on ....

The cause. Some neutropenic states are acquired and transient, for example because of marrow suppression with viral infection, and don't require any intervention.
However, you can be neutropenic from autoimmune destruction or marrow infiltration by leukemia, which obviously would require different treatments. Work with your dr. To find a cause and then treat accordingly.

In brief: Neutropenia Rx

Treatment of neutropenia depends on what's causing the condition to begin with.
Some people have low white cells due to a medication they are taking. Others are born with it. Others develop it because of dangerous conditions such as leukemia. Please consult with a hematologist to determine what form of treatment is appropriate for you.
