following up on my recent post where my rheumy wanted me to reduce from 7.5 mg to 6 mg. I tried 6 mg for 3 days. By the 3rd evening my pain started to return along with the tightening of the neck muscles, shoulders and hips. I took 2.5 mg and went to bed. I did wake up in the night a couple of times (I expected it), but the pain was gone.
So I have decided to reduce by .5 mg to 7 mg for the remaining of Dec. The trying to go to 6.5 mg for January and 6.0 for February and March until I see the Rheumy in March.
The last thing I want is to go back to the pain I have been free from for the last 10 months. Thank you everyone for your continued support and input. It is so very helpful!
