Hi, was diagnosed with GCA/PMR nearly seven years ago. I have really struggled to come right down on steroids. Some flare ups and then steroids put up high and start again reducing slowly. Consultant put me on methotrexate 6 months ago alongside prednisolone to hopefully bring me off steroids. Currently on 5mg and 25mg methotrexate. I have monthly blood tests. Reducing steroids by 1mg every 2 months. Can only increase/decrease once spoken to my doctor. I notice on here quite a few make decisions themselves on dosage. How do you find this?
