I was diagnosed in May this year and am currently on 9mg pred.
If the point of taking pred is to gradually reduce from the starting dose to the level we need to control the pain, why do some people cheer each other on and give praise for reductions as if we were junkies on a rehab programme?
We can’t keep the PMR at bay with willpower! If we are doing our reductions carefully, the dose we are currently on is the dose we need to keep the PMR pain under control and that's the dose we need. From reading posts on here it seems that one of the biggest problem people have is being rushed of their pred. Do you think this attitude encourages this?
I hope everyone knows that I do not mean any offense, I am just genuinely baffled.
