Have been getting more and more ill with my slow reduction of Pred - now 25 mg. Spoke to my rheumatologist and he thinks it is the Pred making me ill and that I should continue a slow reduction. He also said I could try switching to taking it in the evening. I currently take it around 7.30. He said I should try that tomorrow all in one go. Which seems to me to be a dodgy strategy.. What does anyone else think? I do at the moment take 24 mg in the morning and an odd 1 mg at lunchtime. I am due a head scan on Monday and he says he will push for a result in a week. What does everyone think? I do usually feel fine when I wake up and twenty minutes after the meds I feel ill. I also take lefrucimide.
