View Full Version : Can decreasing pred. by 1 mg. cause flare???

I just started tapering from 10 mg. and find it hard to believe that the reason I have had a relapse is due to a 1 mg. reduction in my dosage.......is that possible, or am I just flaring again for other reasons?!?!? I'm so confused! I'll post this on the medications board as well.

it might be a combination of the 2. all i know is that when i decreased from 40mg to 30mg, within a few days i had a mild flare. it only lasted a day though. all of our bodies are different so while 1mg might not affect some people, i'm sure it could very well affect others...
