yes, i agree with rosie and styxgirl ...be careful tapering! i went down 10mgs every 2 weeks then 5 mgs every 2 weeks until my script was done. you don't need to run into steroid withdrawal on top of everything else. side effects from prednisone SUCK but steroid withdrawal could be a lot worse for you :( and actually, tapering too fast can make your symptoms worse (the pain and sensativity).
take care and i hope you are feeling better real soon!
