As of this morning Ive been switched from 40mg pred to 4x 100mg hydro for a few days. I know hydro works faster but are there other benefits? Seeings as been on 40 for 3wks now Im not sure why theyve done it (unless as an excuse to not let me go home!!). One duty dr the other night talked of possib ly increasing pred due to them totally supressing my stomach acid, so could that be a reason for the switch? Wont see a resp dr til Monday so any ideas would be welcome, thanks.
