Well, I'd say the answer is... TODAY!
Back in November, when I was diagnosed with PMR/GCA, I was started on 60 mg of Prednisolone. Due to an aggressive (but unfortunately unsuccessful) taper down plan, that dosage had to be increased to 80 mg, just to get me back to square one!
Hovering at 80 mg for way too long, I began to feel like I was boarding with Lucy in the Sky; and although she was a generous and considerate host, I could not get out of there fast enough!
I have since managed (with many days of aches, pains and totally annoying steroid withdrawal symptoms) to reduce by 5 mg every 10 days!
And today, I am happy to announce, that I start a 10 day regime at 55 mg per day.
I am officially BELOW where I started, back in November!!!!!
Downward and onward.
Here's hoping you have a symptom free day!
