3 months ago I started taking hydroxychloroquine plus 10mg of Prednisone.At my last rhuemy appointment I was started on azathioprine and told to reduce the prednisone to 7.5mg. I have only reduced the steroid for 2 days and im already struggling with increased joint pain, fatigue and aching muscle. My other symptoms have not returned but im sure they will soon make an appearance.
Just wondered how other people coped to reduce the steroids? Im keen to stop taking them as I have put weight on (half a stone) which I understand isnt loads but I dont feel good about it but on the other hand I dont feel good with all the symptoms. Id be grateful to hear how others cope.
