A topic I haven't seen raised, or might have missed, is one of the side effects of prednisilone versus GCA.
I have suffered from CGA for around ten years now, and some months ago, had another relapse. I have been on or around 15mgs for months now. I mainly suffer from dizziness, headaches and generally feeling unwell and each time I try to lower... the symptoms return. However, on some occasions, I have been more dizzy than others which have made me consider whether it is the prednisilone that has / is the problem? If you check side effects of pred. then my symptoms appear.
My experienced consultant has advised, after this length of time, I try dropping 1 mgs every two weeks - ignoring symptoms - until I get down to 10mgs and then review. He has said I am on enough pred. to be within safety factors. He also added he thought it is very tricky to know whether I am on too much or too little!
Any thoughts or experiences most welcome.
