Polymyalgia Rheumatica

Post by kansas » Sat Jun 12, 2021 4:08 pm

Interested to know if there's anyone on Paphos Life who suffers from Polymyalgia Rheumatica and is trying to taper off Prednisolone?

If so, would love to hear from you, and ask how you do it when we can only get 5mg tablets here in Cyprus.

It's good to get off prednisolone.

I was put on it, now my skin is so thin it's like tissue paper.

Awful stuff, but it does have its uses.

I take a medro dose when need, 6 on day 1, 5 on day 2,4 Monday 3..................... and I still get the benefits.
