I am down to 4 mg of Prednisone /day. But I am starting to feel achy. My gluts muscles ache. I fill like it takes effort to get out of the chair. No where near as bad as when first diagnosed. But I am concerned as I keep lowering the dose it is getting worse. My Rheumy has suggested I start hydroxychloroquine. Not thrilled with the possible side effects. Anyone else taking this? I am told this takes a month or so to be effective.
