I ordered some more pred, with a note stating now on 9mg a day.
That’s 1x5mg and 4x1mg. Not difficult is it?
So I picked up my package from the pharmacy: 120x5mg (4 months worth) and 30x1mg (7.5days worth)
I rang the surgery. Took a while to get the receptionist to understand. Was put on hold 3 times.
No! Your records say 11mg, Dr has prescribed 11mg, therefore you should be taking 11mg.
Erm no! I try to explain, give up, and ask for a script for more 1mg. I’m not going to take more than I need, so that should be fairly simple????
No! We’re still harping on about taking 11mg as prescribed.
Get the big guns out: ‘I don’t think my consultant will be very happy when I see her and tell her I’ve increased my pred on your say-so, do you?
Can’t speak to GP as yet again he’s on holiday. She’ll leave a note for another doctor, but won’t know the answer til Thursday/Friday. She has 7.5 days to sort it!!!
What’s that about stress being detrimental to PMR?
