No, there isn't the risk that Neulasta will cause too high WBC count. Usually the counts are non-existant when this is given and it can take a few days to see any count at all. The patient will be monitored on regular basis and Neulasta should be stopped when neutrophil count comes up to a level approved by whatever protocol is being followed.
If the white blood cell count is low or zero it can take even up to (or more than a week) before any neutrophils even appear. All the best.
