I began on 20mg of steriods and after about a month on being on them got it down to 10mg without a problem, then in noverember co-ordinated it between 7.5mg to 5mg depending on pain, have managed to stay at 5mg. I really worried about the weight gain that im having i had someone already mention about it. I feel like i want to get right of the steriods, i feel like i dont need to be on them i dont have any problems when tapering them down like others might do. I rarely eat much i exercise and still seem to be putting the weight on. Should i try to wean of them completly? i just feel that im going to need to come of it sometime anyway and im not having a problem when im tapering down.
