Hi again, now after a very interesting and good (double) session with my GP (who is really getting on board with my case I am happy to say). I am given a pamphlet on Alendronic acid to read, plus a meeting set up for Monday when we will discuss further and see if I am committed to taking a once weekly dose in the prescribed manner.
I would value experiences from anyone.
Just btw, in 2 days time I drop from 10mg pred' to 7.5mg for the next month. I know this is faster than most here would recommend, though I will trust in my Doc who has assessed me specifically and see what happens. The reduction steps slow thereafter to 1mg. Watch this space!
