Came down to 5mg of preds this last month..was doing ok, then symptom started coming back ie. pains in the head neck and jaw and arms so Dr. has put me back to 6 mg whether this will be enough who knows she also suggested that I my have PMR as well as GCA I have just received a copy of a letter sent to my GP and it mentioned that I should have been started on 40-60 mg not the 10 mgs I was given. also said I was one of the lucky ones who responded well to a low dosage. Has any-one else been given low starter doses and benefitted from them?
Lots of hugs
