I'm sure this has been covered before so apologies if so but i am after some more advice please! I have been on pred since the beginning of June 2019, starting dose of 15mg and i am now down to 10mg. As with most GPs, mine is keen for me to come off pred as quickly as possible but does listen to my thoughts and is mostly agreeable; however, she does not like the idea of staying on 10mg for a year and as a 'compromise ' i suggested 6 months then start to taper 0.5mg per month using the DSNS method. If I'm honest i think she misunderstood me and thought i meant 1mg per month so was happy. My questions are, is 6 months on 10mg enough and should it be a 1mg taper or am i right in thinking 0.5mg? Or is it just a case of suck it and see?
Many thanks as always for your time.
