I got my steroids down to 20 a fortnight ago, but last week was bad again, so back up to 40mg. Feeling bit better now had some antibiotics, so starting to reduce the steroids again. Unfortunately I got oral thrush again, and only just got rid of that!

Yes, let us know how you get on on Tuesday. The Respiratory Nurse and Physiotherapist are coming on Tuesday to see me and show me how to use an Acapella Mucus clearance device.

I have been trying to reduce too. Down to 30mg before lungs have started causing issues and possible infection. Avoiding putting them up if I can. X

Indeed. Has taken quite a bit to get to 30. Due to drop to 25 in a weeks time. Hope the drs can suggest something to ease your chest a little x
