I saw my Dr today to discuss my experience of my first flare, explained I was doing well on 10mg of Pred but not quite so well on 9mg. Told him about this forum and other people's experience on reducing too quickly, I'm back on 12.5mg for four weeks and then reduce by 1mg at a time each month until I get back to 10mg.
It was quite refreshing to find he is listening to what I have to say and agrees the reduction should be slowly and in accordance with my symptoms.
This forum is a great place for support and information, I don't know what I would have done without it.
Thank you to everyone who posts on this forum, I realise this is going to be a long journey but feel better to face it with the help of a forum like this.
