Have just spoken to the GP re increasing prednisolone, he told me I should have been taking Omeprazole to protect my stomach from prednisolone (I didn’t because I was worried about taking so much medication) and also Hydroxychloroquine (didnt for the same reason) to work with the prednisolone. He said that by taking these I should start to feel better and not to increase prednisolone.
It seems that I am my own worst enemy by not doing what I was advised to.
The rheumatologist has written to him saying that he wants me to get off of the prednisolone and start Methotrexate (can you just do this or do you have to taper the prednisolone?)
I have a telephone consultation with the Rheumatologist on Tuesday so will make a list of bullet points.
I do feel that he should have taken the time to explain his plan to me when I had my f to f consultation with him.🤔
Feeling apprehensive right now. Any positive thoughts would be welcome.
