Happy to report that my plan of reducing prednisolone over 15 monthly reductions has gone to plan! Tapered from 40mg June 2016 to zero today.
This is my first day medication free (of prednisolone and its associated team , omeprazole, calcium and aspirin).
From previous postings I understand my good fortune, may be attributed in part, to gender (and of course I do not have PMR).
However I feel a great sense of freedom and wanted to share this for others treading the same GCA path.
I hope to return in 3 months and report that I continue to be flare up free and in the meantime, send good wishes, to all those seeking the zero destination!
