I am wondering if on a high dose of Pred for GCA of 60mg if it is OK to split my Pred dose at all into morning and mid-late afternoon amounts. Unfortunately I was still getting some GCA symptoms - not severe but I feel not adequately resolved after almost a month on 40mg - so with GPs support upping dose to 60mg for now until after i see an opthalmologist at least.
(I realise tho as others have mentioned elsewhere I may never be totally 'symptom free').
I coped on 40mg but felt very 'wired' so thought splitting 60mg into say 50mg and later 10mg or 45mg and 15mg might help - but worry it will not have an effective anti- inflammatory result. My GP said he thought it would be fine but I looked through some older posts and I see DorsetLady you mentioned somewhere it wasn't OK to split doses for GCA ??
