Hi - would love input. My Rheumatologist has decided that I should decrease my Pred by 2.5mg per week until I reach 10mg. (So from 20 to 10 in four weeks) and then go down 1mg per month. I am so pleased to be tapering down but am so nervous as well.
Does 2.5mg per week seem reasonable?
My DEXA scan also showed good hip bone density but osteopenia in spine (which shocked me) and he wants me to consider taking Alendronic Acid a Biphosphonate drug whilst on Pred. Any thoughts? I do take Vitamin D, magnesium, Boron and Vitamin A.
