Not sure but I think from reading your post StealthscrapE. For me I have Reactive airway disease/asthma due to allergens and particulate matter (according to the burn pit env Doctors). So my asthma/allergist/sinus doctor has me on 2 corticosteroid inhalers daily. Now I looked up the difference on these compared to what is listed in the VASRD to see how this is rated. When I seen that it said "HIGH DOSE" it made me curious. So I did an internet search on those two medications and it shows for one of them (Arunity Ellipta) that there are a few different doses of that one. I am taking the max dose at 200mcg. For the Flovent Disckus inhaler I take 250mcg of that one twice a day. For this Flovent one there are three different doses and I am taking the max dose for it also. With that being said on my DBQ for this I ensured that my Allergist/Asthma doctor listed that verbiage from the VASRD that I am on the max dose/highest dose of these two corticosteroids due to my condition.Again, I have read all of that from the link you provided earlier but it still does not clarify what is considered high dose for daily corticosteroid use.
I am asking because I am on treatment that requires daily use of corticosteroids (which are also classified as immunosuppressive medications) but I don't know if it falls under the qualification of high dose. I'm hoping someone else has been down this path and might have an idea of what falls under this category.
So with that being said not sure if that was your meaning but I also never could find the meaning of high dose so to me seeing that there are different doses of the same medicines I'm on and I am taking the highest level of that I ensured that means I am taking the max dose or high does when it comes to the VA looking/rating this stuff. To all of us on here if it sounds like a duck it's probably a duck but it's sad that we have to be really specific when we talk to the VA. Hope this helps.
