Today I started new meds. I was raised to 30mg pred on Thursday last week and put on ,Lansoprazole, Alendronic acid and calceos chewable.
It was a bit of a nightmare this morning as had the Lansoprazole on waking then had to wait 30 mins before taking the Alendronic Acid for which I had to stay upright for 30mins. Still no cuppa by thime and I was gagging
Once that 30 mins was over I made bacon butties for me and hubby and sat down to eat and take my Metformin and pred.
I had finally had my 1st cuppa and was on a glass of milk to then take the chewy one which was palatable.
So thats 10 tablets taken in one and a half hours. No more now til evening meal and bedtime.
Back to the gP on Tues for a blood test of my CRP then hopefully see the doc that knew all about this blooming illness.
I have to say the 30mg pred are doing the job apart from painful knees but not sure if that is the PMR or not. I have been given Naproxen but they contain lactose so you can guess what they are doing. So will only take if really need to.
On the up side, I am feeling good for now so all the meds may be worth it lol
Have a great day and hopefully most of you are also in less pain today. Keep smiling
