How long does it take steroids to bring blood counts back up?

My 5 month old son has been on Prednisone for the last 3 weeks because he suffers from low red cell, hemoglobin, and platelet counts and has yet to show improvement.

  • I have no idea. I had mono as a teen and my blood counts were all messed up but I cannot remember how long it took for them to get back to normal.
