Just met my consultant Rheumy and he was very good, he was not happy with the way my GP had reduced my preds and had left me for two weeks with high ESR and CRP levels before putting me on preds in the first placeHe has given me a plan and I will be down to 20mgs with any luck in four months, I started on 60mgs Sept and GP reduced to 40 mgs two weeks later and then 30mgs which she then reduced to 22.5 mgs. I am on 25mgs now and will be on this for another two weeks,then the plan starts. I felt so much better after seeing him today ,I think I need to see another GP. I am so glad I found this site and thanks for all the good advice .
