I just wondered if there is a rough guide to increasing prednisolone when you have a flare up. I flare when I am dropping down on my pred. Last week I had managed to get down to 6mg a day then went to 5.5mg/6mgs on alternate days and then the flare up. The question to be answered is how high I should go up when the flare up first flares! I tend to not want to take too much so have gone to 7.5mgs then 8.5mgs but still suffering. This has happened to me quite a few times. So is it better to go straight to say 10mgs?
I was also told that provided it was only a week on increased prednisolone, and all was well again, I could then go straight back to where I was - which at the moment is 6mgs. If it was longer than a week I had to come down slowly?
I would appreciate anyone's thoughts and advice.
