I read this blog first thing every morning and I think that it it is responsible for my retaining my sanity. The advice given a while ago was to take the medication in the wee hours of the morning to offset the stiffness and pain upon arising. I had been told by one doctor to split my dose and my question is...(.I am on 15 mg. right now and am taking 10 mg at 2 AM and then 5 mg. when I get up. I have both GCA and PMR and right now this is the minimum dosage to allow me to function.) am I doing this right???I am under pressure to reduce and if I can...do you have any formula for a split reduction.?
