Justdave I'm sorry to hear you are sad! That darn prednisone sure can do it! I'm tapering down too. I was on 60mg a day for over a month and that was toruture. I was on 40mg a day last week and for the next couple weeks I am on 20mg a day. I was really having bouts of depression on the hight doses! I know the bipolar doesn't help either! I hope that you start to feel some sunshine soon to help!
