I posted last week about feeling truly awful after the combination of a fall and reducing prednisolone. I've since taken my pred dose back up to 9.5mg (from 8.5) and, after five days begin to feel much better. I now wonder whether, when I see my GP on Tuesday, I should ask him for a synacthen text as PMRpro suggested I might have hit my level at 8.5mg. Would I have to go back down to that level to have the test or would it be possible to tell at 9.5 what was happening? Hope someone can help me with this.
