I know the answer to this has been posted, but I just can't find the post I read a few weeks back. Sorry to ask for it to be repeated.
Started 15mg pred in July, then to 12.5 after 2 weeks, then 10 after another 2 weeks and was due to drop to 7.5 and remain on that for a month before dropping by 1mg a month. Symptoms started to return, albeit very mild, at 10mg drop and over 10 days were getting worse. So on day 11, I increased to 12.5 and guess what, everything improved. No pain, just fatigue. So I've concluded, as suggested on forum, that tapering plan was too fast. GP has put pred on repeat monthly repeat of 5mg and 2.5mg pred. So I can mess with dose that manages symptoms.
My question is: what's the plan now? I'm thinking 12.5 for a month and towards the end maybe alternating 12.5 and 10 for a week or so before trying 10 for a month. Happy to be the tortoise rather than the hare if it works!
I'm so lucky to have found this forum and experienced the valuable support and information right at the start of treatment. I have a better idea what to expect and know when somethings not right, regardless of the medic's view. Thank you.
