On my Rheumy's instructions, I've just taken 3 months to drop from 8mg to 7mg Pred. She told me I'd have PMR for at least 3 to 5 years so there was no need to rush things, and that once I got to 5mg the reduction would be slower still. Fine by me.
I've had my bloods taken today and if the results are good (I'm feeling okay) the plan is to take another three months to drop from 7mg to 6mg.
My question: If the blood results show an increase in ESR, but it's still within the 'normal' range quoted, do you think I should start dropping from 7mg to 6mg as planned? I didn't think to ask the Rheumatologist this when I last saw her, and my next appointment isn't until December.
I Your opinions please?
