hope everyone is having a nice easter break, I have started mine with a lovely heavy cold! a while ago my doctor gave me some pred to keep at home and use when needed, usually my doctor will only give me pred when he examines me first or i have a telephone consultation first and request my rescue pack etc. However with it being a long bank holiday weekend I wont be able to contact my surgery, and my chest also has this annoying habbit of miraculously clearing itself the minute anyone listens to it!
So I was thinking of starting my pred now due to my breathing being really bad and being really short of breath etc but my doc didn't tell me how many to take each day or for how long, he just wrote a prescription out for 100 pred tablets and sent me on my way. and I no we are not meant to ask for medical advice but my surgery is closed as is the asthma helpline so not really sure what to do, will obviously go to a&e if get really bad but im trying to prevent that from happening!
Just wondering if anyone else has pred at home and when do you start taking it?
