Started on 20mg at Xmas - have gradually reduced to 12mg with no problem so far.
A week ago I started reducing to 11mg alternate days - after 6 days feeling less well and pain was returning in my arms and shoulders. I have since gone back to taking 12mg every day as I can't face the pain I had before returning - I can still feel some pains (but not too bad)
Will my body re adapt to 12mg again - with no pain (as it was before) ? I don't reallt want to up it again
Should I have stayed on 11mg and put up with some pain? Would my body have adapted?
Am I right in thinking that it is much better to be under 10mg so bones etc don't suffer and weight gain is minimised?
I am waiting to have results of bone scan. My next blood tests is in 2 weeks. If I feel fine is it harmful to stay on 12mg for months on end ? I seem to feel well on this dose so why reduce at all?
