Hi all. I've had PMR for a couple of years and have been reducing my Pred by the very slow method and am currently down to 10mg. I know the rheumatologist would like me to be lower by the time I see her next... However I'm currently having chemotherapy and don't want to risk a flare up while I've got the chemo and side effects to contend with. I wondered if it was worth just taking 9mg once a week and 10mg the rest of the time for now. Psychologically it would make me feel I was making slight progress towards reduction but is there any point? Is there any reason not to? Any advice gratefully received.
