My GP called yesterday to 'talk' about my results. Wants me to reduce Pred 15mg daily to 10mg. I'm free of pain about 95% time but still have some fatigue. CRP levels ok and other bloods normal but GP wants to restart Metformin at 1 x 500mg daily, increasing to 3 x 500mg daily by 3rd week, a medication I really had adverse reaction to. Does anyone know if Preds likely to raise sugar levels? Is this too big a drop, or as I've only been on them short time (4 weeks) it's ok. A quick telephone call isn't really good for asking lots of questions. GP now away for 3 weeks so I'll have to speak to another GP if I have queries/problems. Just thought I was regaining some of my life back with pain, and certainly more active than I've been for ages. Feel I've been ramraided into more drugs without sorting one medication out at a time.
