I have what may be a silly question but one that i could do with some advice on.
I have been having to have pred at least once a month for most of this year, they seem to take about a week before i feel the real benefits. Most of the time i try to keep going and stay at work etc but am wondering if this could be some of the reasons that it takes a longer amount of time. Is the sensible thing to take a few days off, especially as feeling poorly as well, to allow body time to recover from this? The GP usually gives me 40mg for a week or two but the consultant is concerned with the amount that i am having, close to 50 doses in 24 months, they want me to try 20mg for 3-4 days each time, then return to GP if not better. I want to do everything possible to make this work and maybe this would be the start of getting some control back over my asthma.
Thanks for reading and i hope everyone is feeling well at the moment
