Thanks to all of you! I've learned so much since I signed up a couple of months ago.
Since I signed up, I've been following DSNS to get from 9 mg to 7 mg of prednisone. I reduced by .5 mg, and it's been working quite well. Quite well until the last week when I dropped down to 7.0 every day.
I'm a little stiffer than before, but my biggest problem is that I'm exhausted. Every day I'm so sleepy that I take a nap after lunch (and I'm not usually a napper). Often I feel like I can't get anything done in the afternoon. I live in Seattle and we are having the most beautiful summer, which I would like to enjoy more!
I learned from reading this website that I should rest if I need it, so I'm trying to follow that advice. But I wasn't tired like this at the higher levels of prednisone. The exhaustion started while I was at 7.5 mg, but it's gotten much worse at 7.0.
Does this mean I'm not taking enough prednisone?
Thanks again to everyone! Or, as I've learned from reading this website, I should say "Thanks again to you lot!"
