I seem to be having more problems at the 10/9mg mark than I had on the larger doses of pred when I was first diagnosed last December. I tapered down from 30mg to 10mg in 5 and a half months by the middle of June, but have just in the last week moved to 9mg, so it has taken another 5 months or so to reduce by 1mg.
I seem to be more lacking in energy than earlier, and feel pretty grotty with nausea more often too, although not actually in danger of being sick!
At the same time the pmr pains are showing more signs of being active, albeit nowhere near what they were at the beginning. My inclination now is that maybe the "Bristol" recommendation of staying at 10mg for a year, and then coming down at 1mg a month may suit me better.
Am I the only one to be getting these symptoms at this stage, or is it quite widespread?
I realise we all manifest different symptoms, but I had hoped to be be feeling more "with it" by now!
Grateful for any thoughts.
