As I've weaned over 6 months from 10 mg/day to 1.5 mg every other day, I've had a few minor setbacks that have me now at 2.5 mg every other day. My question is: Can you reduce to no prednisone w/o the PMR being in remission? It doesn't seem like you could. I'm wondering if the ultra slow wean is just a way to follow the PMR down until it goes into remission.
PS The return of adrenal gland activity would be lovely any time now. I've been told it could take 1/2 -1 month for each month you were on prednisone. Does the clock start before you get to 0 mg?
