Went to see my GP today about Pred reduction and quoted this site saying it is best to take things slowly. He would not give me any 2 1/2 mg tablets, but has left me on 30 mg for a further 2 weeks and then to decrease by 5 mg. Has confused me somewhat, as I would have thought it would be better to lower the dose than stay on it for a further 2 weeks. He was listing all the bad side effects of taking them, oh well I did try! I can't even split them as they are the red coated ones. I just hope my appointment comes through with the rheumy soon, maybe he will be more open to a slower reduction as decreasing by 5 mg was too much.
Thank you again everyone for your helpful comments.
