I have been on prednisone for PMR for 2 years and tried to lower it. I was at 1 mg and then tried to go to 1/2 mg . Then I got symptoms of GCA so l’m back to 10 mg. I was told that I should gradually go down but when I get to 1 mg again to stay at that dose for 6 months. I know a lady who was on it for 10 years.
I have this problem. The dentist told me not to chew gum as it makes it worse. I haven’t chewed gum for a few years and it is alot better i try not to open my mouth really wide when I yawn
