In June of this year John finally stopped taking predisolone after a lengthy reduction programme. (7.5mg of predisolone is the equivalent of what the body produces so once you get below that level you are depending on your own adrenal gland to provide some of the steroid.) For about 2 years he was on this dose then gradually he reduced to 5mg, then 2.5mg then John was taking 2mg and then 1mg for over a year before he stopped. Since stopping completely John feels as though all his joints and muscles are very stiff much more than before...has anyone else experienced this after stopping predisolone.
