I was diagnosed with PMR last March and put on 15mg pred. which I reduced very slowly, stayed on 10mg for 2 months, then have been reducing by a half every month. Rather than halving tablets, I alternate the daily dose, so the moment I am taking 8mg and just starting to reduce by half a mg by taking 8mg one day, 7mg the next, 8mg the next. I have also needed to split the dose by taking pred at night before bed, then the following morning. So at the present I take 6mg in the morning and 2 at night.
My questions are: am I reducing too quickly? What is the usual rate of reduction? How do I reduce the split dose effectively? Any help please.
