Can anyone point me in the right direction for information on what doses of Pred might increase eye pressures? I'm having a pretty bad time at the moment and feel very unsupported. 2 years 3 months in - GP doesn't seem to believe in PMR and knows very little, Rheumy less than helpful saying "presumed PMR" and discharged me. I got down to 4.5mg, had to increase to 7, now I'm trying out taking it at night as mornings were bad, but late evenings are getting painful, and turning over in bed and the usual early hours bathroom visit are proving very difficult (though by getting up time I'm much better). I'm considering increasing my dose, but I'm in the throes of treatment for my serious Glaucoma. I've just ordered a second set of new specs, as every time the pressure in my bad eye changes the prescription changes, and I've already lost a lot of sight. I'm between the devil and the deep blue sea with this.
