I have been put on methotrexate as a steroid sparing drug and am now, after several weeks, at the full dose of 20mg. I have been told by my rheumy to reduce the prednisolone from the 20mg I was on once established on metho. I guess I am now established on the metho and reduced from 20mg to 17.5mg of preds last week. What I want to know is how quickly can I reduce the preds now. It just seems that I do not need both drugs and am hoping to get off the steroids ASAP.
