Sos to seem so dumb about this - am on long term pred which the cons is trying to wean me off - but getting infections infections again. My question is about 40mg pred. I had an infection in December and went from daily 4mg to 40mg and was weaned down very very slowly back to 4mg then have to double doses at times due to other problems (adrenals asleep) and now have another infection which is triggering pluerisy pain and breathing low - phew sorry being long here- saw doc on Friday and he has put me on high dose antiobitics 3 times a day as last time had to have 2 different courses of others as infection wouldn't go, he said to up pred to 10mg - I am wondering if I should call and ask if pred should go to 40mg or should I stick to 10mg and wait? Lungs are full of gunk and getting a little confused with pred medication with doc, and consultants differing opinions so sorry for dumb question - i have scanned other threads.
