Hi everyone...haven't posted in a while. I have GCA since Sept 2014...started at 60mg and now down to 10mg...some issues along the way. Started 15mg at the end of June and had lots of things going on....gallbladder removal, 2 UTI'S, calf pain and hair loss. As I tapper down some side effects go away and I get others. Right now my main issue is my hair. lost so much, it is now very thin. Had to buy a wig and just wish I knew when this will stop. Does anyone have any info on the hair loss and at what mg it will stop falling out? Moon face has gone down some and hoping to be rid of these side effects soon. CRP has been elevated since I was on 15mg...stayed on 15mg for 3 months. With all the inflammations that was going on and no symptoms of the disease my Dr's decided for me to come down 1mg at a time for 3 weeks each. So far so good. Sed Rate has been good.
Any info on the hair problem will be appreciated. I am sick over it...I had nice thick har and right now I don't want to go out without a wig. Nothing like your own hair. Thanks. Bert403
