I have been trying to get my Endocrinologist to adjust the dose of prednisone so that I can take a steroid that is better for my adrenals.
Since I have been taking between 8.5 and 9 mg of prednisone I am now to take 6.5 mg of prednisone and 1/2 of 0.5 mg of Dexamethasone. Which to me is 0.25 of dexamethasone. So here is my problem. I do not trust the dose to equal my present dose of prednisone. I know I am supposed to have confidence but I have been knocked around so badly that I no longer trust any doctors.
PRO Do you know how the proper dose is determined? I wish I could be comfortable with what I am told but I am not. I do have good reason not to trust. When one of the best rheumatologists in the US takes me off steroids so quickly that I have the vilest and most dangerous relapse plus no adrenal function...I lost all faith.
