Not posted on here for a while but coping with slow reduction from 20mg in March to 13mg so far. I am looking for some advice on taking Echinacea whilst on Pred. I have a heavy head cold at the mo and in the past I would have taken Echinacea to help speed up recovery. I thought I had seen a comment on here about not taking it while on pred so wondered if anyone had any info. I have found this site very helpful and often wish doctors had more experience of PMR as I have found some of them lacking in knowledge!! Thanks in advance.
