I normally have a maximum dose of 40mg of prednisolone, sometimes I go up to 60mg depending on what my consultant thinks.
anyway, i've been at 40mg for nearly 2 weeks, and my consultant had asked me to come in do an exhaled nitric oxide test, unfortunately as I was tight chested I was not able to do it despite many attempts at doing so which really frustrated me. I just couldn't breathe out for long enough at a steady rate.
So my consultant said ideally he'd want to admit me but i have to come back on thursday and he has doubled my prednisolone to 80mg. I don't think I have ever had so much pred before and I'm a bit concerned about how much benefit I will realistically get from such a high dose (to me anyway)
any thoughts about this would be appreciated.
