I have been wondering over the last week or so if there has been any research conducted regarding this subject.
Is it the case that someone who is a large framed individual, weighing say 100 Kg. will have the same response to a measured dose of prednisalone as asmall framed individual weighing say 60Kg?
The reason I am asking is that I am having big problems reducing below 12.5mg.
I can drop to 10mg. OK and I seem to be able to manage at this level as long as I stay very relaxed and rested. However if I get any stress or do just slightly too much I get headaches and neck pains returning. Removing said stress and physicality does not alleviate the symptoms and I have to go back to 12.5mg again and start the reduction again.
Can it really be that my "maintenance" dose is as high as 12.5mg?
My doctor is of the opinion that this is too high and would like to see me at around the 7.5mg level. I'm sure he has my best interests at heart as he wants to try to reduce the chances of the worst side effects.
I am only currently 6 months or so into this nightmare.
