Hi, my gp has suggested a maintenance dose of steroids, taking a few (don't know how many yet) every day. Whenever I have steroids I improve so much for a couple of weeks afterwards and then rapidly go downhill again. I'd be grateful if anyone can let me know if a maintenance dose helps them or conversely whether it doesn't. Side effects or not. I don't normally have any side effects from a usual course, 6 a day for a week then gradually decreasing which can take another week or two. Thank you! Andy
