There is a lot of info regarding tapering but if you are started on to low of a dose of pred is it safe for the Dr to increase, mine just went from 5 mil once a day to 10 & he said lets try this for a while to see if theres improvement. I told him that from what I'm reading here is that it isnt enough for a diagnosis of both PR & GCI but he doesnt seem to want to give me higher at this point, maybe its because of the bad side effects I had a while back on the Medrol pack. Also I an feel the difference with the 10 mil, less shoulder pain but luckily I havent had the scalp pain in about six weeks & dread it coming back because that is just so pianfull. I thought that he would automatically put me on a higher dose but he didnt.
