Can't keep pred down :-s


I've recently been struggling with a chest infection (already had a weeks abx) and my cons put my pred up to 60mg on tues to try and get me over the last of it. Unfortunately, since last night I have been vomiting and can't keep anything down (probably due to the Chinese take away I treated myself to as I can often react like this to MSG etc). So obviously this morning I have vomited up all my morning meds repeatedly (can't even keep water down). I'm not too fussed about most meds but a bit worried about not taking the pred ... I've been on it for over 2 years at varying doses and I'm unwell atm. Also, sods law O2 isn't working so I can't phone resp team easily.

Any advice? Hopefully it will settle by tomorrow!

Might be worth getting an appointment with your GP to see if you can temporaily get the pred in a different form e.g. intramuscular injection whilst you are being sick to make sure you get the dose of pred you need.
