I was wondering how successful people here had been in reducing (or even coming off - yeah right!!) long term Pred and what your daily doses were?
I've been trying (with consultant overseeing it) to reduce my long term (years....) daily Pred. I've been on a high dose for a long time, tried to reduce before, always end up visiting Costa Del NHS and Pred being put up. Get down to 10mg successfully, but then it all goes wrong.
I reduced my dose earlier this week, I thought I was doing okay and was really pleased with myself, but it's not looking good now. Unless I make a miraculous recovery overnight the Pred's going to have to go up again and it'll be a trip to the docs tomorrow - really hoping I'm having a 24-hour blip (though know if I'm honest it's not ).
Have others managed to get their dose down? Does anyone have any coping strategies?
