Have you asked to lower the dose of prednisone?
Usually it can be tapered rapidly to 5-10 mg doses
when was the polymyalgia diagnosed? Do you still have symptoms from it?
I do not think you need apixiban unless you have atrial fibrillation, you can also take out glipizide and simply shift on regular insulin, this will help lower the number of medicine and their side effects. Let me know if you have questions
I strongly advise you to NOT stop apixiban. We don't know your history. You could be taking it for a variety of issues. Don't change any meds without talking to your doctor first.
Also, the best treatment is to reduce prednisone.
Please don't forget a positive rating. I appreciate it. :)
If you have more questions, just reply.
All treatments should be stopped after advise of your doctor, this website is only for information. Stopping abpixiban is a suggestion if there is no atrial fibrillation. Thank you.
