I saw a rheumatologist for the first time several weeks ago. He spent a lot of time with me and went over history of meds etc. he was shocked at the dose of pred i was on ....19 .. I had been slowly reducing from 22. So he wanted to see me down to 10 in 6 weeks if I could do it. Then remain at 10 for some time. 19 to 15 in 2 weeks and all was well. The 12.5(5x2.5x5) the past 2 days has been a struggle. Mid afternoon my emotions are a mess. VERY irritable. I know this is not the recommended way to reduce but my question is does this steroid rebound just run its course getting better each day? I am not in pain, would like to hold steady as otherwise I look and feel better and have lost some weight. Appreciate all your experience and suggestions.
