I read here that I needed calcium and vit D3 which it was suggested should be prescribed automatically with being put on steroids. So I rang my GP practice and have brought home a box of Adcal 750mg/200 t.u.
Now my question is, I read here - take Prednisone in the morning (2 a.m. preferably) and the calcium in the midday - my prescription says take two tabs twice daily - in morning and at night, so should I stick with the timings on the box or change to midday and night?
Second question is about the blue card. Is a blue card issued automatically or should I request one. I have been on steroids now for well over two months (gp put me on them to wait for my rheumatologist appointment)?
Thanks in advance champs.
