40mg of prednisolone at the onset of my GCA gave me very little sleep so my GP prescribed sleeping tablets. Now nine months later I am still struggling with reducing the steroids and I am just about getting by with 15mg with the help of a daily pain relief tablet. I am wondering if I should try to wean myself off the sleeping tablets now.Has anyone else had similar problems? Incidentally I was diagnosed with PMR months after the onset of GCA and I can only conclude that when I was on the high dose of steroids it was holding the PMR at bay?
