Because my thrush is not leaving while on Prednisone and all GCA symptoms are in remission I need to get off Prednisone ASAP. I’m at 6 mgs for 8 days. I saw a post earlier stating the person reduced.by .05 mgs a week. Is that considered safe? I see rheumatologist next week and will see what she thinks.
Still have PMR but also on Actemra.
All that I eat has a slimy Vaseline taste from the thrush,
went to infectious dis doc and he had me on 100
mgs Diflucan s day. A week of taking snd still no relief snd concerned that it might hurt my liver because of being on Actemra. Labs will show. Rheumatologist will most likely not be happy that I was given the long dosing of Diflucan . I also have CVID that I receive gammagobulin monthly to replace my antibodies but skipped treatments for almost 6 months and hopeful that beginning infusions last month will also help lower the yeast level, I’m so depressed and worn out with all this. Sorry for rambling but always looking for input. I do low carb and high protein diet. Mostly grain free and clean.
