My docs & I have agreed that I need to get off prednisone as it is hurting more than helping. At 1st I was on 60mg wk, then 40mg for 3-1/2 mos, then 20mg mo, then 17-1/2 mo, 15wk, now 10mg. I am really suffering. I have extreme fatigue/weakness, feverish, muscle/joint pain, can't sleep, sweats then chills, worst is the mental part: anxiety & depressing feeling. This is day 4 of 10mg. Each day is tiny bit better, but yikes. My pulm. doc wants me to go down to 5mg next wk, then none. My PCP says that's way too aggressive. I agree. So I am trying to come up w/better plan. Any tips from any of you who have done this is greatly appreciated!
