Have been tapering down my meds ( PREDS) slowly since April 2014 as diagnosed with GCA and PMR early march.. haven't really had any major issues re tapering... Have had a persistent cough for two weeks. took myself off to the Docs to be told i have Bronchitis so now on a course of antibiotics. I just wanted to know if having a new health problem affects the tapering of the Preds as i have noticed slight headaches over the past week? I take 7.5mg and 5mg on alternative days have only got one more week of this to go, then to drop to 5. Doc said yesterday to just continue with what i am doing, but not sure if i should or call the consultant.
