Hi all, I'm currently taking 2.5mg Pred having had PMR for last 18 months or so. When I'm ready to reduce (tablets on come in 2.5mg and 1mg form) i'd rather not go straight from 2.5mg to 2mg as percentage wise that's quite a drop. Should I alternate between 2.5mg and 2mg every day or 6 days at 2.5, 1 day at 2mg then follow a pattern of reduction replacing the 2.5mg with 2mg (ie 5 days at 2.5mg, 2 days at 2mg, etc). Or doesn't it really matter?
PS Pain's still there but bearable so would rather reduce the Pred
