My usual Emergency pack is:
- Prednisolone 5mg (Steroid) 42 x tabs @ one dose of 6 each day .... 7-days total
- Doxycycline 100mg (Antibiotic) 8 x tabs @ 2 on first day then 1 per day .... 7 days total
I've just finished a course, so yesterday popped into the GP to get a replenishment, saw a new cardio nurse, she gave me a prescription which I've just collected.
It's the same meds as usual, but twice the number of Doxycycline .. ie: 2 on day one, then 1 per day for following 15 days.
..... has she got it wrong, have I been the wrong quantity for or what ..... I'm confused - which, for me, isn't difficult.
So, my question .... What's the normal dose of Pred's & Doxy's for the emergency pack ..... what do you lot take?
