Dear moderators- I have just finished up the 4 weeks of 60 mg of predisone that my rhumatologist ordered; I see him again next Thursday. I would like to go in to my appointment with my thoughts and questions prepared (in spite of pred. brain fog) so I am hoping you could give me your perspective on this proposal- I am ready to start a taper; also, I would like to split my dose A.M and P.M.
With starting from such a high dose now, what taper decrease amount would you want if this were you?
Would you see making the change to both the taper and the splitting at the same time? If not, which would you start first, and how long between would you suggest before starting the second phase?
In splitting, what ratio between the first and second daily dose would you recommend?
Thank you for adding your experienced insight to my decision making process, I am very grateful for the education available here.
