Just a quickie - Dr's are starting to wean me off steriods - commenced weaning last Nov from 5mg 1 day then 4 the next and so on. The 16th January reduced to 4 x 1mg per day, now been a week and really suffering with indigestion. Seen my blood Dr and mentioned this this morning. On checking my steroid said that they were not coated to protect my stomach. Also said that I would have been better weaned at 5mg per one day followed by 2.5mg - both steroids come coated to protect the stomach.
contacted my chemist who advised that 1mg do not come coated.
Left message with my Rheum to query the above.
Question: If i go back on 5mg once per day followed by 2.5mg per day (after 1 week of taking 4mg per day) will this cause any problems? or as it is a small amount won't cause anything but reduce the pain and wind of constant indigestion?
Thanks, Lulabelle x
