Haven't posted anything in over 10 months. Was diagnosed with PMR August 11, 2016 and was put on 50mg prednisone for 1 week and then went to 20mg. My doctor said I should be on 20mg for a complete year, before I start reducing. I have been pretty good except for the usual side effects. In one week from now, on August 10 I will start reducing. I will be going from 20mg to 15mg, then reducing by 5mg every 14 days until I'm off all together. Looking back at your comments from last year, I know that most of you feel that this is way too fast. My doctor says that he has used this approach with a few other patients and it did work for them.
Wish me luck and I will keep you posted.
