Have reduced to 10 mg Pred as I wait to see Rheumi mid July. All was 'well' with this and Lansoprazole 30 mg but past week I have developed horrible (although painless) diarrehea. Can't get to see my reg GP, is it worth going in to ask whoever is covering if I can change stomachs meds? I'm on uncoated pred, and read some posts about maybe Omeprazole or other stomache coaters. I like idea of no meds, just yogurt but worry it go thru me. Or could I get a lower dose of Lansoprazole; I didn't see this coming as thought after more than two months on regime, there wouldn't be an issue, but does the stuff build up in one's system? Any advice gratefully received! (Sorry should add PMR only diagnosed late April)
