Hi all. My asthma has been flaring up over the last three months and I've Just started my third course of predisolone in as many months. The first at the end of July was 40mg for 5 days. The second was 2 days of 40mg, 3 days of 10mg (I stupidly dropped as thought I felt better and was getting terrible side effects) then 5 days of 30 followed by 5mg less every 3 days. This second course finished two and a half weeks ago. On my way back from my holiday yesterday it really flared up again so called the out of hours gp who advised me to take another 5 day course of 30mg.
My concern is that it's an awful lot of pred over a short period and what's more all this stopping and starting can't be good for my body. Should there be a minimum recovery period between each course to ensure your adrenal glands are working properly again?
Taking this on top of the 8 puffs of clenil 250 per day means I'm feeling totally pants.
Anyhow, I hope everyone is well and happy.
