I have been on 10mg prednisolone daily for 18 months now - tried reducing once and it was not successful. My question is, how long do people tend to stay on pred? I don't actually want to try reducing it again as am quite happy on it as part of my regime. I just got a shock earlier today reading either on a blog or a question that someone has been on steroids (not sure of the dose) for 10 years!?! If so, I will definitely have to get rid of my smaller clothes and stay in my 'fat' ones. As I say, I am not actually bothered as being on the pred is much better than not taking it. I just have no idea of a timescale. If this is a silly question, I apologise!
