Hi, was dx mid Dec 2014 started on 15mg, then 12.5, 10mg, and 8mg by 28 Jan. Was ok'ish on 7mg in Feb, then down to 6mg not brill, but going down to 5mg was awful. After 5 days I went back up to 6mg but now a week later I still feel as bad. Should I have gone higher, and if so, for long? (Just to make it more complicated I was dx Parkinson's 4 yrs ago too.) I haven't got the acute pain in my arms and shoulders back etc but just the acute exhaustion and again real difficulty turning over in bed and getting out of the chair. (which I thought was due to the Parkinson's and still partly is) The worse thing is the exhaustion, I just cannot seem to do much at all. My Dr is very keen for me to reduce the prednisolone as soon as poss as I have issues with brittle bones, but reading up on the reduction suggestions on this site, I have to agree with these. I am really desperate to reduce as have put on over a stone, am on an anti-inflammatory diet, but cannot continue feeling like this, your help would be much appreciated.
