Been given 2.5mg gastro resistant coated prednisolone tabs by my rheumy/gp. Started on 10mg for 7 days as instructed (heavenly results). Yesterday had been instructed to drop 2.5mg down onto 7.5mg for another 7 days. I know it'll take a day or 2 before I can tell how I react to the drop, but I'm feeling as if would like to slow down the drop to 5mg, which should be this coming Friday My gp had told me to check in with her during the taper. My plan is to ring my gp on Tuesday after the BH, tell her that, the way i'm feeling, i'd like to do this taper more gradually and ask her for 1 or 1/2mg tabs so I can go down more like 1 or 1/2mg every 2 weeks . But first, I want to be sure 1mg prednisolone tabs exist and are prescribed in the uk (i ask cause my husband was on steroids for crohns for 30 yrs, but got off 10 or so years ago. ) Also, just to be clear: gp says she & my rheumy think most likely I will stay on a 5mg dose longer term.
