Hello , I was diagnosed with PMRAnd GCA in June 2016 ( aged 64) almost 65!i s immediately put on 65 , then almost immediately dropped to 62.5 mg prednisalone a( equivalent to my weight in kg )also 20 mg of methotrexate , I have been fortunate not to have ant nasty side effects other than moon face and little sleep . I am now down to 8 mg prednisalone. was down to 7 but upped it back to 8 ...... think I may have reached my lowest limit for now .
i live in central Victoria in Australia, married , kids, grand kids, dogs and chooks!
(I am a retired nurse ) I have found this forum very informative and helpful .
