The steroids are a weeks worth and the first day is 6 pills second five and then 4 then 3 and etc.... until the round is done I am taking a lil less now as I was getting sick on them. The dizziness is at bay for now but she had told me we would do the steroids as she hoped it would dry up the remaining fluid in my ears and I was thinking if that happens and the ENT said my ears looked fine maybe (just reaching here) I might get better? If we clear up the inflammation and fluid and he didn't see any sign of damage maybe I will be better by 8 weeks???Any one think so???? As for the valium i am on 2mg 2 times a days but cut it back to 1mg 2 times a day as i was getting so drowsy but may just take 1mg once a day that wouldnt be too bad right??
