After making five attempts at getting to 10 mg I have realized that my body just does not want to go there yet. I've had PMR for 8 months. So now that I've made this decision I've got to convince my rheumatologist who is dead set on me continuing a downward taper without stopping. She is very anxious for me to get off of prednisone. Anyone have any ideas on how to convince her that this is the best option for me? And does anyone know how long I should try staying at 11 mg before trying again?
