Several years ago I was changed from coated Pred to uncoated, I was told they were not cost effective . Over the years my digestive system has been getting worse, diverticular, IBS, hiatus hernia, gallstones, and an inflamed stomach.
I see my Rheumy in 2 weeks time and was thinking of asking him/her [ I never see the same Rheumy twice ] about changing back to coated Pred. as I feel they MAY help with the inflamed stomach ? [ I'm not on any stomach meds. they didn't agree] but do take Gaviscon when needed.
Has anyone on the site changed back to coated Pred. after being on the uncoated for several years, and would I have to alter the time I take the coated ones ? I find that the uncoated takes about 2 hours to kick in, and I don't want to mess up my slow reduction by changing over, If that makes sense, I'm now on 12mgs. Pred, OR should I leave well enough alone ?
