I'm currently tapering my steroids to try and come off them after a flare about 16 months ago. I've managed to get down to one and a half mg a day without too many problems. I started using a cutter to half the one mg tablet as this is what I've done in the past - but when I saw my consultant she laughed and said you should take 2mg one day then 1mg the next and that is the same as one and a half. I've taken her advice this week but I am really struggling with my energy levels. I just wondered what others did? My plan agreed with my consultant is a month like this, then drop to one mg for a month, then alternative one mg with no tablet each day for a month - then celebrations as I should have cracked it!
