Hi Deb,
My first biologic was humira, and I was able to get almost completely off prednisone while on it. Go slow so you don't get flares, but hopefully you can get down a lot further on you prednisone intake.

Debrose,
I too have been on prednisone for many years. Cant seem to get completely off of it either. I am down to 1mg. a day tho.... so happy for that. I am also on humira which unfortunately has quit working on me. This is not anything new for me. I have been on several meds injections and infusions for my RA all of which after awhile quit working on me. I am scheduled to go back to my doctor Monday morning. I am assuming then we will discuss what else they can change me to. I get so tired of this. But what can you do? I hope you are able to come off of the prednisone as I understand. However I will tell you that the last few mgs. that you come off of will make you hurt like crazy. I was told that the last few was the hardest to wean off of. I have been on 1mg. for about 8 months now.

Hugs to ya
