Hi All I have been reducing Pred I think successfully now for 12 months down to 6 mg from 20mg still get pain when reducing but who disen't . My Rheumy now wants me to take Azathioprine to ween me off the Pred faster . Isn't it just throwing another drug in the works . I could understand if I was stuck at a specific mg and couldn't reduce anymore , anyone got a logical reason for this I know Aza isn't as bad for you as Pred providing your blood count stays stable . Your thoughts .
