Can somebody please tell me if what I am doing is ok? My Neuro. appt. is in Dec, and my local GP is on holiday. For the past few days, I have felt small headaches in my scalp and a bit of pressure at my left hairline. No pain, but a bit uncomfortable, worse at night. I am on 3mg Pred. Yesterday, I took 4mg and today 5mg. When I last saw my Neuro, in April, I was on 5mg and doing well. I asked him if I could stay at that dose, even if it meant forever? He said no, and I should taper to 0 by Dec. I don't like to guess when it comes to Pred.
