    Default Best ways to reduce prednisone dose

    Hi Everyone
    Please post your experience on reducing your prednisone below 5mg and how successful?
    such as like reducing by 1/2mg or by alternating dose. Low and bit high dose every other day(7mg one day and 5 mg next day?) and so on........

    I took my 5mg pill and split it into quarters for 4 days it worked and I weaned off no problems. Ask your doctor how he/she prefers you to taper each doc has their own way depending on how long you have been on it.

    hi ssingh,

    i don't take prednisone, i get medrol injections, and i am on methotrexate. So, i won't be able to help you, however, i have seen several postings about reducing prednisone,and i am sure that these folks will be along to answer your question.
