I've had PMR for four years, I started on 20mg of Medrol and am now down to 4mg ( there have a few flares along the way) I want to reduce the dose even further if possible. I'm feeling good as regards muscle pain but in the last few months have been plagued by minor infections. A bad sinus attack, oral thrush and now a nasty skin infection. Are these related to a suppressed immune system caused by the steroids?
