I have had a GCA diagnosis for a year now and have been successful in tapering down to 5mg of Pred. No problems whatsoever when taking 6 mg for 4 weeks. Very excited as gargantuan appetite disappeared and I’ve managed to lose 5lbs in the last fortnight. Then last week the headaches came back. Went to GP - she said ok to self medicate which I’m happy about. Went up to 6 again, next day 7 and today I’ve had to go up to 15 to get rid of the headache. Can anyone advise me please where I go from here? How long do I stay on 15 and then how quickly can I taper down to 5 again? I would really welcome your opinions - have always been so helpful when I have asked before. Thank you.
