How do you reduce steroids from 15 to 12 .5 when you don't get a 0.5 tablet. I am new to this site and very confused re reduction. I had a small stroke end oct 15 which resulted in loss of of peripheral vision on both eyes and consultant did MRI scan and stroke was due to blocked artery. Consultant ant suspected GCA at same time I was diagnosed with PMR and was started on 60mg steroids for 4 weeks and then a reduction of 5mg every 4 days until I reached 10mg and then GP suggested after a week to go to 9mg but esr levels were rising and he put me back to 10mg but I'm in lot of pain again and I'm sure he will suggest going back to 15 next week. But the tapering down from there is confusing me. I'd be grateful for some suggestions on this
