Took my last pill yesterday! It was nice not having to wake up and take it early this morning (although I did wake up at 6 am ready to do so LOL).
 
Anything I should expect? Like does the "crappy" feeling get worse for a few days? When will I know I'm in the clear for any problems?
 
I'm really hoping I'll be okay off of it though, this taper seemed to work okay. Besides a few crappy days every time I came down, it was nothing like before. So my fingers are crossed!

I sure hope it goes that smoothly! :) I keep telling myself I've been under 10 mg for about 2 months, so if I was going to flare I probably would have already. So hopefully that "part" is gonig to be okay. Just worry about the withdrawl issues. But I think this taper was slow enough, so my fingers are crossed!

It is normal to have some more joint pain a few days after you get off. I had one bad week with really bad hip pain that just went away.
Been living with Crohn's Disease for 32 years.  Currently on Asacol, Prilosec 60 mg, Estrace, Prinivil, Diltiazem, Percoset prn for pain and Calcium.  Resections in 2002 and 2005.  Recently diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and doing tests to see if I have Inflammatory Arthritis or AS.
