I have reduced from 17mg to 10 over 7 months with relatively few issues. 4 days ago it was time for me to reduce to 9 so I did. Two days later symptoms started returning, particularly the pain in my left sacroiliac joints. I assumed this was a flare so I went back up to 10. I've been on 10 for 2 days now and the pain hasn't gone. So, should I continue with 10 and hope it goes soon, or should I increase a bit more? It seems that flares are harder to cure than they are to cause!
