Hi all & hope everyone is having a good day?
Following diagnosis of this pmr last Tuesday & put on 20 mg of pred daily (& the results have been amazing!) I have just got back from my first check up with the doctor, who is pleased with my response, but she has told me to start on 15mg as from tomorrow (she feels I won't notice this drop as it's the usual starting dose) I have spoken about my reservations on such a big drop, especially as I have my first full night back at work this weekend, but she has said to try as I can always go back up again or alternatively drop 1mg a week for the next five weeks. She also wants to refer me to a rheumy because of my age plus has given me vit d & a weekly calcium tablet. Which path would be best to take? So confused & a little apprehensive right now
