Hey Guys;

I have been successful in getting off of prednisone. yeah

My last dose, 2.5mg Was Sunday October 4th. I want to say that I have been on it continuously for about 15 or so years now. I am not exactly sure how long, it kinda feels like forever. I must say that I am happy these days. I am calm, I am relaxed, and things don't bother me that much. It is a dream come true. I catch myself smiling an awful lot.

It is not yet all roses though. I still have trouble. My biggest problem these days is still prednisone. My mornings are pretty rough, it takes me several hours to get going, tired, fatigued, but nothing too awful, and I am not complaining one bit about it. I am wondering, and I know this question is tough, feel free to guess.

Does anyone have any idea how long it may take for me to get all the pred out of my system?

15 Years WOW, you have done well to get off it :)
I have been on it 6 years and feel trapped by it, but you have given me hope yet.
Hopefully it gets out of your system quicker than you think.
Take care
