Preparing to lower my steroids again, to 8mg, when my next weekly pill pot is done on Friday night. Am cautiously hopeful I can ultimately get to 7.5mg and maybe even a bit under. But the medics and me are expecting me to be on a fairly high dose for life, plus Mycophenolate Mofetil. At least it's been dropping pretty steadily since 2014, albeit very very slowly. Normally vasculitis patients can drop much better. But my cerebral vasculitis isn't playing nicely, even though high dose Cyclophosphamide infusions in hospital in summer 2012 did give it a firm slap! I've been on steroids permanently since 1998, so 20 years. They keep me alive, reducing the inflammation in the blood vessels in my brain. I'm posting this graph as a possible comfort to any other patients struggling to taper or hitting a limit point.
