Just a quick question - I asked a few days ago about going up from 5mg to 10 mg for a short time and then going straight back to 5mg. PMRpro on here said that would be ok for a day or two, as did my Rheumatologist - 1 or 2 days will be fine he said.
Mentioned the same to my GP yesterday to see what he thought and he said 1 or 2 weeks would be ok - just wondering what people here thing about that length of increase? Would I need a slower decrease to get back to 5mg?
I am generally ok with 5mg - just slight aches in the shoulders and upper back but nothing I can't handle. But recently had some treatment which causes reactive arthritis and I can feel the aches getting worse, so I'm tempted to try an increase to see if it sorts this out, but not sure if 2 days increase would be long enough to tell?
Any thoughts welcome.
