Its been awhile since ive tapered down in Prednisone. Tomorrow I go from 25 mg to 20 mg. Should I expect any effects from that or should it be reasonably well tolerated? Cheers guys.

I had a problem dropping by 5's, so my rheumy gave me 1 mg tablets. I dropped 1 mg per week and I am totally off predisone.

Cheers ad Good Luck

Tapering Prednisone is different for each of us. If you find that any of your symptoms come back or worsen, make sure that you advise your doctor immediately, you might have to taper in smaller increments or you may have to be on a maintenance dosage. I hope that your tapering does not cause any problems for you...best of luck!

Peace and Blessings
