HIGH Eosinophils/Lymphs When On Imuran??

Hello:

23 YO Male diagnosed with AIH just under 2 years ago.  I am on Imuran now.  Just had most recent lab work and it shows....

Low WBC 3.8
Low Hemoglobin 12.5
Low Hematocrit 36.3
Low Platelets 126
Low Neutrophils 32%
High Lymphs 48%
High Eosinophils 11%
High AST 93
High ALT 70
High GGT 87

I thought Imuran was supposed to SUPPRESS the immune system.  I was going over my initial labs, and even when my AST/ALT was 2200/1400 none of my WBC counts were high?  I'm having a hard time understanding this.  Is there something else going on here?  Your thoughts are great.  Personal experiences are even better.  

I understand that high eosinophils generally means an allergic reaction, but I haven't had so much as a sneeze or runny nose.  

Thanks,
