Just been put on that as the reduced itra. from 400 daily to 200 daily just has not worked...should have stayed on the 400...was on 3mos and was working ...Dr. reduced to 100am/pm 3 weeks ago and now am pretty bad with congestion an asthma. My blood level for itra. was 1.7 a week ago and my Dr. said that was a good reading but the drug is not working at 200mg. a day. Instead of increasing back to 400mg...am now told to take 300 mg. a day itra. 200 am and 100 pm. I don't understand why the slow climb back up and is it good to split dosage like that? Breathing so bad that I have had to increase my Pred. from 5mg. daily to 20mg. daily and still not working. Any help would be so appreciated.
Thank you Hannah B
