Hi its trish 29 here and I had a meeting with my GP today. He's not too happy that I'm not down further on the prednisolone . I'm on 13_14 mg a day . I've come down from 16.05 mg through the year. I have had PMR for nine years . I have also got osteoarthritis in my spine and left knee. Can't walk at all . Just a few steps with a mobility walker and I have a Mobility Scooter. He has asked me to contact my Rheumy with trying to get a new appointment as I'm not booked in until December. My Gp has asked me to ask fellow PMR members if anyone takes AMITRYPTILINE to help them get off the steroids ? I have taken them in the past but I remember they made me feel quite YUK!! Gave me bad heads and I felt sick but maybe I didn't take them long enough. There is some good news my x/rays came back clear on Osteoporosis .. Shows that my Calcium VitD and K works after all these years. Any replies I will be grateful. Thanks trish29
