Hi all

I wonder if anyone can help?

I completed a five day course of high dose steroids 2 days ago.

I haven’t taken them for a few years & it has just dawned on me that I spaced the tablets out throughout the day when I should have taken the 5 tablets in one go, each day!

Will they possibly not work the same?

I have been experiencing all the typical side effects, lack of sleep, sore muscles etc.

Thanks in advance

Spacing them out might have caused less stress to the liver but the antiinflammatory effects would happen anyway, I’m guessing.

I agree, Kaypeeoh.

Don’t worry, Annie - they’ll find their way to where they need to be. I hope they do a really good job for you. It is such a good moment when you start to know for sure that the steroids are getting the job done. Fingers crossed that happens nice and quickly.


Thank you both for responding & your reassuring words.

I just felt so foolish when I realised my mistake & worried that they wouldn’t work as they should.

Here’s hoping.
