My friend has was commenced on Prednisolone 60mgs on Friday for suspected GCA and has now had three doses.
She still has vision problems. Can the dose be increased further? This whole scenario has been poorly managed (no surprise to you all) so far and her trip to the hospital today resulted in the doctor asking for an ophthalmologist opinion who said that the steroids couldn’t be increased further and that she might go blind!!!
I have told her to contact someone to ask for a Rheumatologist opinion urgently (she sadly lives at the other side of the country to me now).
