Hi all, bit of a conundrum, like some advice please.
Am down to 5mg, using the "slowly does it procedure". All good, except for the problem of waking up in the morning. No sure what it is the problem, could be some or all of the following.
1. As am now down to 5mg is my own body not kicking in properly,
2. Recently changed my habit of taking Pred from breakfast time to early hours (I.e. If I wake to go to loo between 2-6am I take tablet),
3. Am taking Co-codamol for OA. Only 1 tablet (lowest dose) twice a day, sometimes three times if really bad.
I go to bed between 10-10,30 at night so not exactly living it up, but cannot seem to wake up when the clock alarm goes off at 8 in the morning. Also have alarm on iphone.
Should I go back to taking Pred at breakfast, don't have any great problems with aches in morning, or should I try splitting the dose, some at bed time, some in morning? Trouble is no one else in house to wake me!
I know problem is not exactly earth shattering, but I'm sure others have been through it, ta very much!
