I'm struggling to reduce my long-term Pred. I've been on it for a few years, often at a high dose (40mg). I can get down to 10mg, but if I drop to 5mg it all goes wrong.
I tried again to drop to 5mg last week and it went wrong - and I'm now back on 40mg.
By my asthma plan, I should drop back to where I was, i.e. 5mg after 5 days, but the GP I saw today (not my GP) suggested I drop to a variable dose - alternating 10mg and 5mg each day.
Has anyone done something like this or know what the proposed benefits should be?
