PMRPro's response to Verdala is the first I think I've read of the Vit C "pred sandwich" at start of dosing.
I'm on 12 mg pred daily at this time (down from 15mgs in Dec).
Are there suggested doses of vit C and why it is helpful to sandwich the Pred in Vit C when you start?
I currently take 500 mg vit C/day and am curious if I should take more... I eat a lot of green leafies, but not much citrus.
PMRPro, I've also had steady slow weight loss success on the low-carb diet (hope I haven't jinxed myself by putting that in black/white!).
Almost all my carbs come from veggies and 2 pcs fruit/day. Have lost 20+ lbs since Dec, while taking 12-15 mg pred. However, must note that my appetite is also still down from PMR effect AND I'm able to move more bc I feel better on the pred than I have in the last 2-3 yrs....
TY again all, for sharing your thoughts!
