Hey all

Ive recently tapered from 7.5 mg of Prednisone to 5mg. Im having the effects of weaning off. Short fuse, slighlty swollen eyes, sore muscles, fatigue and so on. Ive had this every time ive weaned below 15 mg so im not worried, however im just curious to how many day it takes others to get over the weaning effects. In the past ive gotten through them pretty well after 4-5 days, and other times its taken closer to 1-2 weeks. Its just interesting to hear other peoples tapering stories.

Thanks guys.

Me too. I was down to 5 mcg a day. the Rheumy wants me down to 4 at the moment. I tried 2.5 but that didn't work. At the moment I'm flaring; the pain is bad, but not intense. I just started this week so I'm tracking the reactions. I'm tearful also. I cry really easily lately. I'll let you know results
