I live in northern Europe where the winters can be quite severe. After having being diagnosed with PMR in Feb 2013 I have taken Preds for almost 2 yrs. I tried to decrease the dose from 5mg. to 2 and a half mg without success. The slightest knock leaves me badly bruised which is unsightly and discourages me from swimming which I love. Recently read about Statins (which I also take for my cholesterol) and decided to stop taking them..............only been four days.......am thinking that the combination of both drugs could be detrimental to me.......am I wrong? Would it be wise for me to take a trip to a warmer climate and get some sun....please say yes.
