Hello dear members of this forum. Yesterday a follow up with the gp and distressed once more. On Pred since october 2016 and now on 7,5 mg Blood bse is 17. So far so Good. But now he wants me off Pred within two months! I told hem about my fear of flares, and using more Pred that way after all. He just raised an eyebrow. Then I told him about the Bristol papers and Eular recommendations and suggested to send him material and he answered " you can do that but I am not going to do anything with the knowledge". In Holland we have the nhg ( dutch gp association) and they advice 2,5 Mg in at least 7 weeks meaning still 21 weeks, being closer to my idea of 1 Mg a month. So what to do, going on my way, and be without Pred in a couple of weeks and hoping the gp will provide, or go back and protest. I am just so fine, building up and recovering, Taichi, Swimming and walking, and could do without the stress. If it was not for you, members of this forum I would be on AA now, with bones in good health. Thanks for this a thousand times, Aletta
