I am still feeling much better due to changing the time of taking my Pred to approx 4am. However, as I already have gastric problems (for more than 20 years) I have been suffering a bit with Acid Reflux and tummy pain. My appointment to see GP was today and although he said when I started the steroids, as I already have 30mg Lansoprozole, he did not want to prescribe the enteric coated Pred. Anyway, I asked him again today as I am into my 14th day of Pred and really feel I need the enteric coated, he still did not seem to be very keen but I suggested that this was more about cost as they are dearer than the uncoated tablets, I think this worked as he relented and gave me a prescription for them. He said to see him again in 2 weeks, which, at that time, I should start reducing the dose from 15mg to 12.5mg. He said after another month, I should get down to 10mg and then reduce slowly by 1mg at a time over the proceeding months. I forgot to ask about being referred to a rheumatologist but I am quite happy to carry on following GP's advice for now.
