I post on here on behalf of my 89 year mum who lost most of her eyesight to GCA 16 months ago and as a consequence is now in residential care. Her medication is managed by the resident GP and the rhumatology department at the hospital, she has been on a monthly reducing dose of prednisolone and 2 weeks ago it was stopped. We don't have a great deal of faith in her GP and have just had to request a blood test as she has an appointment with a rhumatology nurse in a weeks time.
I've not seen any posts on here of anyone who has come off of Prednisolone and just wondered if there are any symptoms or side effects of stopping the steroids, other than the usual ones for the condition, we should look out for.
Just want to say thank you for this forum and all the advice and support.
