After getting down to 5 mg Prednisolone very slowly over 4 years I am now experiencing a PMR flare following months of serious sleep deprivation (absolute torture!) due to Restless Leg Syndrome and major balance and back problems caused by recently diagnosed spinal stenosis. As prescribed by my GP I am currently on 15mg Pred for two weeks and then another two weeks at 12.5mg. Once things have settled (hopefully) although the balance problems I fear will be ongoing, I would very much like to get back to 5mgs as quickly as possible. Therefore I would be grateful if one of you good folk could suggest a 'faster track' reduction plan OR do I need to take months/years as previously to reduce to 5mgs. Thanks in advance.
