My GP told me today my ESR level came back as normal for my last blood test (15). Started on 15mg of Prednisolone in Dec 2015, reduced to 9mg within three & a half months, had a flare so went back to 15mg gradually reduced to 10 mg which I've been on for nearly two months. GP thinks it's time to consider trying 9mg in a couple of weeks time because my ESR blood result is normal, I'm not sure about this, if I were to reduce I would start with 9.5mg using one of the slow methods PMRPRO recommends. Just wondering if I should stay on 10mg a while longer, after all I don't want another flare again?
